The castle of Miramare near Trieste, Italy, taken from the Napoleonica climbing spot during sunset. The name means 'sea view' in Spanish, and the castle itself was build for the Austrian Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian. The name itself, however, always brings memories of another Miramar - the US Marine Corps Air Station featured in the movie Top Gun. Yes, the place exists, and it really did host the Navy Fighters Weapon School - the famous Top Gun.
