Miramare Castle

Miramare Castle

Miramare Castle is surrounded by a flourishing park full of precious botanic species, and has a charming panoramic view, given its location on a cliff high above the sea. It stands on the peak of the rocky promontory of Grignano in the Gulf of Trieste, and is about 10 km from the city itself.

Commissioned in the second half of the 19th century by the Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian of Hapsburg as a residence for himself and his wife, Charlotte of Belgium, the castle offers today’s visitors an example of a luxurious aristocratic residence which has preserved its original furnishings.

The Castle and the Park of Miramare are located about 10 km north-west of Trieste and it is possible to reach them from Trieste by bus, by car or by train.
