Cesta Tower, City of San Marino

(4.7/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • second of three castles of san marino basket Castle and the most articulate in. contains the Museum of ancient weapons that I would recommend you see before continuing to the montale (tersa Tower) and a little aloof compared to historic but carries the visitor even more during the middle ages.

  • It is one of the symbols of the city but unfortunately at the moment it is closed. From the terrace at the base of the tower beautiful view over the coast.
