The castle, San Marino: 33 reviews and 86 photos
?The distance between the cities of Rimini and San Marino is thirteen miles, and the road, though so steep when within a few miles of the mountain as to require the addition of oxen to the carriage, is kept in excellent condition. After a pleasant drive of ten miles through a fertile valley abounding in vineyards and cornfields, the traveller arrives at the northern boundary of the republic. Here a stone formerly bore on one side the initials S. P. (Pontifical States), and on the other R. S. M. (Republic of San Marino), but time has obliterated all traces of the letters.?
? from ?The Republic of San Marino? 1880 by Charles Bruc, duca di Busignano
La Cesta, the Second Tower, houses a museum of arms and armor; the collection was acquired by the State between 1956 and 1972. The four-room exhibition traces the development of sidearms and firearms.
