  • The fortress of SAN LEO, as well as throughout the Boulder where dwells the small medieval city, is one of the most beautiful castles in Italy. Designed in the middle ages as a military garrison, thanks fifteenth-century Sienese Francesco di Giorgio, intervention on behalf of Duke Federico d'urbino, became a residential Castle made polite forms typically Renaissance. Mind you without wasting anything in efficiency and elusiveness of formidable war machine. And such was the centuries: espugnabile only for climbing steep walls of rock, or betrayal of castellani killers (thus managed to conquer the Valentino in 1502, and Florentine Medici in 1517-troops). Magnificent round tower with various plans for Defense and the guns. Superb three squares in a commanding position overlooking trecentossenta degrees of weapons. Misterose and charming rooms and cells where he died a prisoner the famous Alexander count of Cagliostro in 1795.

  • Microscopic San Leo has a history, which would be pozazhidoavali, and many large cities. Fort-much of it. Visit the Museum-need! The camera alone, where Cagliostro died sat and what faces! Objazadel'no take an audio guide! It is attached to a free ticket.

  • If you are on the Adriatic coast don't miss to pay a visit to the fortress of San Leo, very impressive place that evokes a mysterious and disturbing story for the character of Cagliostro.La Fortress and fortress are very well kept and the visit of the village is very pleasing. But what strikes you obviously are the places that have seen the detention of Cagliostro and the history attached to him.

  • High ticket prices, but a visit to this impressive fortress and this wonderful, medieval small town is always worthwhile. Incredibly wide and beautiful panoramic views over the margins.

  • Definitely one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, full of magic and mysticism, and the tomb was well preserved fortress prison of Cagliostro, where his "followers" carry flowers in what was his cell. Strong call to Masonic sects where periodically gather. Inside there are many references to famous masons of the past, like Disney, deer, Ford and others. Don't miss the summer reenactment, very impressive with Fireworks which start from the fortress to the music, really exciting. In short, a must see.

  • Beautiful fortress with a great view. From the village you can access this fortress by a trail with a rise of about 10 minutes. Can be the room the torture room, some jails, an apartment, and an exhibition of works of art. After the effort going back down to the village, I recommend a stop at the gelateria.

  • One of the most suggestive places in Italy! His reputation is tarnished by the lure of the nearby San Marino, however, has nothing of the authenticity of this small and nice village that I recommend to visit. Bring comfortable shoes that will walk:D
