It's a wonder that Richard's Arch survived the urban encroachment. The Arch itself isn't particularly picturesque but it is set in a lovely part of town - narrow unspoiled streets, steep alleys, interesting churches and attractive traditional dwellings.
Next to the one of the most romantic square in Trieste piazza Barbacan was Roman gate. Thanks to emperator Augustus who built them in the heart of old Trieste.
Why Riccardo? Some recall legendary events like the passage of Richard the Lionheart this city...
Very cool, very old, very Roman stone arch built into adjacent building once upon a time a long time ago. It was a surprise find, tucked behind some small buildings, near the sea port. Nice photo opportunity. Not very exciting or magnificent, but still standing.
Truly awe inspiring to be up close to this arch which has been in place since the Roman Empire. Also close by is further reminiscence of the structure which is the subject of an active archaeological dig
On your way up the winding streets to the church high above the town, you will pass the Arch, which is one of the few still standing Roman structures in the city. It's surrounded by modern day apartments, but is still worth seeking out.
This is a small Roman arch located in the old city of Trieste and accessible by foot. It's attached to a building now housing a restaurant. Don't expect anything too massive and you won't be disappointed.
