Today’s Pic du Jour is of the courtyard of the 18th century Palača Carli, or Palazzo Carli, located in the Koper, Slovenia’s main port city in the northern Adriatic.
Named for the historian Gian Rinaldo Carli, who was born in the house in 1720, the fountain in the courtyard dates back to 1418.
By the way: Wikipedia notes that Carli was an encyclopedist; learning that on a day when Wiki is holding a fundraiser was too strong a coincidence to pass on, so I chipped in 10 euros. For a free site that I use each and every day, that’s the most solid investment I will make today. I think you should, too.
