Canal Grande in Trieste, Italy

On my research tour for Austrian tracks in Italy I also visited the Borgo Teresiano of Trieste. It was founded by Maria Theresa in the middle of 18th century. The canal depicted above was a waterway for merchant ships in order to bring commodities directly to the merchants in the city. [German]

In the background one can see the neoclassical building of the church of Sant’Antonio Nuovo.
