Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
As one of the three towers on the national flag and coat of arms, Cesta Tower serves as one of the most well-known architectural buildings in the city-state. Built in the 13th century on the highest of Mount Titan's peaks, this tower generally receives less attention than the more developed Guaiti. Today the tower serves as a museum to honor Saint Marinus, the first person to build upon Mount Titan, which ultimately led to the creation of the independent republic of San Marino. Follow the trail between the two accessible towers (Cesta and Guaita) and climb the steps of the tower for panoramic views of the city.

  • As the Guaita Tower is a symbol of San Marino. It is well maintained and retains the charm of the times. Interesting and well stocked the Museum of ancient weapons, some of which show the perfection of the art of those who built them. Unfortunately there is currently not open to the roof terrace. A note: listless and staff very friendly.
