Basilica del Santo Marino, City of San Marino

4.1
#4 of 8 in Historic Sites in San Marino
Explore the Neoclassical architecture of Basilica del Santo Marino, the main church within the city. Although this structure was built during the 1800s, the first church that occupied this spot was constructed during the 4th century. Enter the basilica to see the three large naves, green Neoclassical interior, numerous paintings, statues, and altars. Head back outside to see the Chiesa di San Pietro next to the front steps. This small building was built in 600 and reputedly houses the beds of San Marino and San Leo. Inside, look for a statue dedicated to St. Peter and a monument to Pope John XXII.

  • Outside of architecture itself, very nice place with stored the remains of the founder of the free State of stonemason, a good place to relax in San Marinusa heats for a silent prayer, away from all the crowds

  • The basilica is dedicated to the founder of the 19th century because the ancient parish church that was in the area was in poor condition. The Church itself is not architecturally outstanding but a visit is a must because it keeps the relics of San Marino.

  • Beautiful basilica. Must visit as it's much better inside than you'd think from outside.
  • The pillared facade is very photogenic although it is quite plain inside
  • I spent 2 full days exploring San Marino time ago. This ancient church is historic and wonderful. Everybody who visits San Marino should make a stop to explore with calm this beautiful church.
  • Impressive Church.
  • I saw it just from the outside, but looks nice. I really love the historic buildings. Hope I will ever saw it from the inside.
