  • From the town center can be easily reached by Bus n° 27 along the coastal road-itself a show-before rising towards Muggia Vecchia. The basilica is surrounded by lawns, flower beds, oak, Cypress and walls, which (if you're lucky enough to find them not frequented, such as weekday) are delicious. From the Western Knoll overlooking the Gulf and in the distance appear white in the snowy mountains. The temple dates back to the 8th century, while the Bell Tower of later times. It was originally dedicated to Santa Maria Castro Vallejo, looks clean and linear with the brick. And a special grace give small mullioned Windows on the façade. The three-nave Interior, it seems was fortunately undamaged, without alterations and trappings. The black pulpit, which suspended on columns, seems to float in the air. Visiting her in a morning serena, the play of light that enter increase the fascination with twinkling motes and beams. The frescoes are still quite visible, and a team of skilled restorers (visas) are at work. All our wishes to he can stay intact in its "Romanesque" hieratic and simplicity.

  • Worth the climb on the hills overlooking Muggia to admire this lovely medieval church, the only building left of Muggia Vecchia. The interest is augmented by the location in a small park maintained very well, from where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Gulf. Recommended!

  • On top of Muggia Vecchia lies this beautiful Romanesque church of the 11TH century. Dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta and elevated to the rank of basilica. Inside precious frescoes of 1300 and a beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary. Simple but charming exterior architecture with its bell tower and the adjacent small cemetery. Next to the churchyard a balcony overlooks the Gulf of Trieste, enjoying a beautiful view over the castle of Miramare. Around the church there is a small but well maintained Park, within which were brought to light the remains of settlements older than the middle ages, from the Roman era and beyond. Nice post, simple but with a quiet atmosphere.
