Historical centre, San Marino: 46 reviews and 100 photos
Built in 1894 on the remains of a medieval building, the Palazzo Pubblico is the place for state ceremonies and similar official events. It remains the see of most governmental instituations with the only larger exception being the congress in a modern building to the southwest. The neogothic style of the building makes it somehow look like a medeival castle. Some rooms in the building can be visited, most of them were restored back to its 19th century style after a renovation of the building in 1996.
A popular event is the changing of the guards which takes place every hour in front of the building. Piazza della Libertá (liberty Square) is the main square very popular with tourists. On most times, there is something going on there. At the time I was there, Ferrari was presenting a Formula 1 car for the upcoming Grand Prix of San Marino (which takes place in Imola, Italy).
