Historical centre, San Marino: 46 reviews and 100 photos
This simple, but beautiful renaissance church was built in 1549. Its history began 6 years later, when the inhabitants of San Marino defended their town against an attacking troop on June 4th 1543. In honour to that, it was decided to build a church which was dedicated to St. Quirinus (4th of June is his day in the calendar of saints).
In 1849, the church became the temporary quarter of Guiseppe Garibaldi during the wars that led to the formation of modern Italy. It was from this place that Garibaldi sent the order to his last troops in Rome to capitulate.
Nowadays, the church is often called "Chiesa dei Cappuccini" as it is kept by the Order of Capuchin Friars.
