Interior of the Church of Saint Anthony - Trieste, Italy
 Enter Trieste, Italy, turn a few corners and chances are excellent you will happen on a church. The Church of Saint Anthony lies hidden in the heart of Trieste’s main shopping district. It’s outer walls provide refuge for merchant stalls, and by the time you discover there’s a church there, you’re well on your way past it.

 It appears that the church is only open for visitors before and after mass and that its main entrance is on Piazza Sant'Antonio. We learn that this neoclassical church was build between 1828 and 1849. The statues on top are local martyrs.
