Giardino Basevi

The Basevi garden is located in the area of San Giacomo.
In 1839 the garden was bought by the Triestinian deputy of the Vienna Parliament
, Giuseppe Basevi. He donated it to the Municipality of Trieste in 1898.
You can find one of the entrances half way up the Dublin steps.

Rob, thank you very much. I feel I don't deserve it, it's just a small space I use to rant and rave, and at times have a laugh...

Your post today reminds me of my time in Trieste. Living in Campi Elisi I used Via Besenghi and Dublino Steps often as a swift shortcut to town, on foot.

That is how I discovered Giardino Basevi, that is kind of forgotten in that corner. I really like your photo's awesome view from the top edge of the wall, almost "looking over", kind of a "secret garden" feel. Really cool.

I really like the "echoing" effect you got here with the trees, Rob. The bare trees are one of my favorite things about winter. I would certainly climb those lovely steps to get to this garden.

Thank you so much for the award -- my first! I appreciate it particularly in that your photos are so very good. Yesterday's was like a dream!

Thank you so much, Rob. This is very kind of you and is much appreciated.

I love photos of bare trees and this is just perfect. Our trees rarely shed all their leaves because it never gets cold enough for them to go into dormancy.
