El Pedocin

El Pedocin

We go back in time when we enter this public Bath… it is the only one Bath still divided into 2 parts by tall wall: one for females and one for males… like in the 800’s. in the city it is known as El Pedocin, but its real name is Bagno Lanterna. Despite its close position to the city center, less than 1 kilometer from its main square, the bath is the cheapest in the city! Admission fee is only 1 euro.

The most crowded and lively part is the female one; here you feel complete freedom, of word and manner! Actually in the hot and sunny days here in Trieste the bath has registered 3000 admission, two thirds only in the female part!
