[ Feb. 2014 ] On the hill of San Giusto in Trieste in Italy, there is a cathedral. It is not the gorgeous sort of chuch, but pure and beautiful stone one. Apparently, in the 5th century already there was a rectangular hall of worship. There is a remain of the mosaic from that era now on the floor of the current cathedral. Between 9th and 11th century, they made two churches on the site, and then in the 14th century these two merged to become today’s cathedral. The main altar looked new, though.
I always want to go up to the higher places. So we went up to the bell tower there (1.50 euros), but the number of the steps were only 90. That is because the original bell tower was destroyed by a thunderbolt in 1421 and they never rebuilt it.
