  • Spectacular historic plant in scenic surroundings. The Church contains a few meters a wealth of history, culture and beauty that takes your breath away. Around historic routes between the middle ages and ages. Absolutely breathtaking views of Trieste and its Bay from the forecourt.

  • Don't be disappointed with the size of the building that may seem small to a basilica in the commonly understood sense of the term, although technically it is a basilica in the strict sense, because greatness is not in size. An ancient temple, with frescoes of the thirteenth century (what's left of it), which creates an atmosphere of yesteryear. From the courtyard you can enjoy a beautiful panorama of the Gulf of Trieste, although it featured the port facilities and especially the tanker terminal.

  • The first time I happened to Muggia, where then, seven years ago I came to reside, my son had accompanied me to the Church of the assumption in Muggia Vecchia. I was immediately fascinated by it first for a sentimental reason: to my native country, Orgosolo, near Nuoro, the seventeenth-century church dedicated to Our Lady's lopsided de mes ' austu ' (our Lady of mid August) in the Spanish version, is for us the main one and the festivities last for ten days and always attract thousands of strangers (now mostly tourists). To attract me, then, that simple Romanesque structure and even more simple (I would almost say primitive) surviving frescoes inside. After years I later found out that there was only time to compromise, after a thousand years, those figures representing Saints and religious scenes, but also a parish priest who, allergic to art, in years not far away had called a painter to cover them. Attempt luckily thwarted before damage was completed. Going back often and even a few days ago, as I do with guests coming from outside, I accompanied a Peruvian, also a lover of art, fascinated by the whole Church and also from the beautiful panorama from the nearby belvedere. I cannot, therefore, recommend as a must for those who happen to Muggia the climb up this hill where the Romans had built their outpost.
