4062 – Baroque in Trieste

I have stopped tagging images the same day that I’ve taken them. It’s too much work. I still tend to tag them with country and city immediately after import, but that’s pretty much all I do. Half a year later (like now) I sit and wonder what church this could be.

Does it matter? Not very much. This is baroque, an already quite international style. Yes, I know, the spanish and latin american variant can look very much different, but everywhere else it’s by and large the same.

4060 – A Lotta Windows

Like Lisbon, Trieste has a big main square at the sea front. It’s not as big and impressive as Lisbon’s, but you get the idea. At the far side you see the City Hall, an actually pretty beautiful building, I think. Well, forget the tower for a moment (although you’ll see a few details of it), just look at the sheer amount of window area. Looks like steel has been used to stabilize the frame. Otherwise the windows would have to be smaller, I think.

Well, indeed, it was built between 1872 and 1875, says Wikipedia. Seems I could be right.
