The most obvious fact relating to this church is it's commanding position, facing as it does towards the sea with the line of the Grand Canal, a Piazza and a Fountain in between. Dating back to the early Nineteenth century, the facade is impressive with...More

This church is incredibly impressive as a landmark in the Canale Grande quarter. Inside it is a little disappointing.

Chiesa di Sant'Antonio Nuovo's main defining feature is the columns in the entrance. There also some statues above to look at. Unfortunately, I couldn't see the inside, though. The proximity to the Canal Grande is an advantage.

The view at night from the canal is simply breathtaking and a photo opportunity that must be taken as the church and the lighting reflect in the water. The tranquility at night is diametrically opposed to the hustle and bustle of the day with market...More

This is an imposing building in central Trieste. At first glance it doesn't really look like a church, and looks maybe more like a Roman or Greek temple. A quick look is enough as you explore this part of Trieste.

One cannot fail to notice this church when walking around the Canale Grande area. The front of the church, with its columns, reminds one of a Greek temple. I did not have the time to visit the interior.
