Its tower, built in the 11th century and previously used as a prison, is one of three that can be seen on the national flag and the nation's coat of arms. Climb to the top for panoramic views of the region. The surrounding area is quite developed, offering restaurants and shops.

  • Definitely a must both first and second tower ... The third already more difficult to achieve. You buy a ticket that allows you to visit them both over to two other attractions in the city. Part of the history of San Marino and definitely one of the most characteristic attractions to visit.

  • You just have to go there in person to understand the magic of these places. If you love photography like me you will have that pick.

  • One of the two towers that you can visit (there is a third too further south) and worth entering. It is quite large and you can walk along the battlements as well as entering the tower itself and climbing up the steep wooden stairs - there is also a section of three iron rungs in the wall to climb up to the middle level and this is the hardest part of the stairs (see photo). Great views from the top as far as the sea.
  • Very amazing place, entering costs for 1 tower approximately 5€, but near the tower from the left side ,there is space place to see the city from the top
  • Pretty fun to walk around and see the views. Worth the day trip to explore a few hours.
  • Very beautiful place. The architecture it's amazing and the views just stunning.
  • This castle is, needless to say, a must visit of San Marino. Picturesque, scenic views of the Apennines and an unbelievably clear panorama of the coastal plains that stretches all the way to the Adriatic Sea. On a clear day, you can easily see the churches of Rimini from atop the hill using the telescope. It's quite amazing to think how the earliest inhabitants decided to settle here and constructed such mesmerizing structures that stood for over 700 years.
