Basilica del Santo Marino, City of San Marino

(4/5 based on 300 reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Basilica was built in the classic style
  • Beautiful place both inside and outside.
  • Un posto molto bello!
