Explore the Neoclassical architecture of Basilica del Santo Marino, the main church within the city. Although this structure was built during the 1800s, the first church that occupied this spot was constructed during the 4th century. Enter the basilica to see the three large naves, green Neoclassical interior, numerous paintings, statues, and altars. Head back outside to see the Chiesa di San Pietro next to the front steps. This small building was built in 600 and reputedly houses the beds of San Marino and San Leo. Inside, look for a statue dedicated to St. Peter and a monument to Pope John XXII.

  • Nice Catholic church dedicated to Saint Marinus, the founder and patron of the Republic. The present neoclassical church was built in 1836 in place of an earlier one that dated to 7th century. The front porch contains eight Corinthian columns. Relics of St. Marino are enshrined in the basilica under the altar.
  • San Marin is definitely worth visiting. This medieval fortress with a paranomic view from the countryside to the Adriatic kept me speechless. When I was there the funicular was closed but I got to enjoy a tasty gelato. I totally recommend this little Republic.
