“There seemed a fitness in the fact that in the tenth century, that gloomiest period of her dark ages, the last king of Italy should take his stand upon the rock of San Leo, there to make his final and losing struggle against the German Otto.”
— from “Wayfarers in Italy” 1901 by Katharine Hooker
Among the miscellaneous items about the fortress at San Leo is the wooden scale model (see photos #1 & #2) on display in the Armor Room.
The entry gate (see photo #4) has a very interesting latch (see photo #3).
A very unusually shaped window (see photo #5) begs the question, “Why?” If it is original, it could have been used by archers defending the fort.
