Cesta Tower, City of San Marino
(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. Arrange your visit to Cesta Tower and discover more family-friendly attractions in City of San Marino using our City of San Marino trip itinerary builder.

  • Very beautiful and striking the road from Guaita leads to the basket, this second tower than the first is small less visited and used as a weapons Museum where you can see armor, guns, swords, halberds and bygone era. Again you can take great photos and see beautiful landscape views from the tops of the towers. Accessible with a note of only 4.50 € or with the much cheaper San Marino card that only 10.50 includes admission to 2 towers (the third closed because closed because unsafe) Palazzo Pubblico and pinacoteca del museo di San Francesco. Recommended although I preferred the first tower much bigger and well maintained.

  • The Tower basket is the most big three, be reached walking a long way but worth it. Its preservation is excellent and the views offered are unique

  • The upper tower is certainly worth climbing just comfy shoes are needed, otherwayz may be very tough! As a bonus you get nice plastic entry tickets with pictures of the Early Renaissance.
