Basilica del Santo Marino, City of San Marino
(4/5 based on 280 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.

  • The main church of San Marino but nothing fancy, impressive on the outside but very bare and dreary, small internally with limited seating, very sketchy in furnishings and in its interior one thing of note is the excellent reproduction of San Sebastiano di Tiziano. If you are passing through here a quick look it deserves anyway.

  • The Basilica of the Holy has a very simple but beautiful architecture. The size is small compared to other Italian churches, but its beauty is shocking. On one side of the Basilica you can see the stone bed where marine rest in what was the beginning of the Republic

  • To be the main church where the Saint's relics are cases which gave the city its name, I expected something more magnificent. On the contrary, it is rather bare and with little personality.

  • 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!
