Montrupino, near Trieste, Italy

A limestone plateau rises abruptly to the east of Trieste.
The ancient church above at Montrupino was built into a limestone cliff.
The karst geology below leads to unique vegetation.

The American lady above was trying to get back into Trieste from the small town.

Below, looking north to the Dolomites and the Alps of Slovenia.
