Leaving the city and walking along the Barcola seafront, the well-known place of Trieste where people go sunbathing and swimming, we find the Pinewood of Barcola: maritime pines and holm oaks are the background and offer refreshment to bathers on sunny summer days.
Once home to spas and rich Roman villas, other villas were later built in this area (such as the Russian-style ‘Villa delle Cipolle’ and the Venetian-style ‘Casa Mreule’, still present today); it underwent an important change between 1950 and 1960 with the construction of the large complex called ‘Albergo Americano’ and with the burial of a big stretch of sea.
Over time, this area has become a beautiful pine forest of 25,400 square meters; today is densely frequented, both for summer baths and for suggestive winter walks. The landscape offers tranquility and there are also several equipped areas and playgrounds with recreational facilities for both children and adults.
