San Marino

San Marino was founded more than 17 cebturies ago and is the oldest republic in the world. The legend says a Dalmatian mason with the name Marinus fled from emperor Diocletian and founded a Christian community on the mountain Titano. So the future republic was created. The capital San Marino is situated on the mountain and the palace of the government on the “Piazza de la Liberta” where also the Statue of Liberty stands.

There are three fortresses on top. The view from here is gorgeous!

We have been all the way up. Admittedly we got some help: from the parking have to take 4 !!! elevators to reach the city gate from where you walk through narrow alleys up to the top.
