The Coastland Trench Park is located in Contovello/Kontovel, and it is a very easy route which offers a splendid view of the Trieste Gulf. The route takes its other name, Park 40, from the nearby discovery of a large number of ornamental brooches from the 40th Infantry Regiment.
The coastland trench was a complex which started in Duino and ended in Novigrad (today Croatia). It was built to defend the city of Trieste/Trst but was never used.
