To emka: yes you are right

  • Dear Malgorzata,
    you remember things almost perfectly :)
    Indeed that is the Miramre castle at the end of the curve. i am not sure if something is clearly visible beyond it, but that part is the Sitiana bay, another beautiful bay area with pristine beaches... which extend up to the mouth of river Timavo. beyond that is the port of Monfalcone.

    SISSA and ICTP are very difficult to stop in this shot, but I think I can see some white spot a little right to the castle and I would suppose that is one of the SISSA buildings.

    The interesting 'trapezoidal' building on the top of the mountain is the Sanctuary of Monte Grisa, a very abstract looking church. One gets the best views of the whole province from that point.

    Best regards,
