Citadel of San Marino

Tradition has it that San Marino was founded in the fourth century AD by a devout Christian stonemason called Marinus, who took refuge there after being persecuted in Rimini and set up a small community. Its rugged isolation helped the enclave to develop and keep its independence.

San Marino is said to be the world's oldest surviving republic. An 1862 friendship and cooperation treaty with Italy, which has since been revised and expanded, reinforced San Marino's independence

    Hi Mark, a lovely page about San Marino - I didn't know anything about it, so it was nice to read about what you can do there! I really like their architecture, and the curiosities museum sounds funny!

    A watch to wear on the nose - now that would be hard to read. Or you'd need a very long nose.
