#4 of 6 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.

    The Basilica of Saint Marino is to visit, although toccata and Fugue. Wear appropriate clothing, as indeed in other churches.

    Beautiful, simple Church. Really worth to visit. Not so old, fresh look.

    The main Basilica of this small State, makes an impression. Inside-quite modestly but with taste. One of the main attractions of the country-mandatory placement.
