Worth the bus ride to here. An education, to be sure. They have preserved many things nicely, and their museum is excellent--many examples, pictures, films, etc. Free, but be sure to donate to upkeep. Never Forget.

It was the only concentration camp on Italian soil with killing facilities. It is difficult to accept. Requires a certain level of maturity to do the visit both for the local or the tourist

イタリアで唯一のナチ強制収容所がトリエステの外れに有ります‼︎ 私は四年前に1カ月半おり、最初は語学学校の課外授業で参りましたが、その後三回1人で訪れて、イタリア語の上達と共に、その悲しみ、苦しみを感じております! 今回若い日本人のクラスメイトとミラノから来た相棒と2回案内しました! トリエステに来た方は是非訪れて、寄付してあげて下さい! This is the memory of only one camp for Jewish & anti-Nazi in Italy! When you come to Trieste, you should come here!

Despite its proximity to central Trieste, you will not find many other people at San Sabba, which was both a detention center and concentration camp during World War II. The exhibits are unadorned and stark. From this place, many detainees were simply put on the...More

The Risiera gives a moving account of a darker world war II period in Triëste. The audio guide is advised and also well to do for kids. The experience is intense, though not too grim.
