San Marino

The Republic of San Marino includes nine administrative districts called 'castles'. Originally, the term 'castle' characterised only the four Malatesta castles that became part of the Republic of San Marino in 1463, while since 1925 the denomination was extended to the subdivisions of the entire territory.

The 9 castles


The territory of the Castle of San Marino is dominated by Mount Titano, included since 2008 in the World Heritage List, together with the medieval old town, which contains the historical, museum and architectural heritage that most characterises the uniqueness of the Republic. The Rupe del Titano is an extraordinary ecosystem that can be admired by following the path of the same name, a ring-route of about 4 km that runs from Borgo Maggiore along the upper part of the mountain to the Third Tower. Along the way you will come across the area known as the Santuario della Tanaccia, an archaeological site that confirms the existence of a place of worship frequented from the 5th century BC to the 5th century AD. The Sentiero delle Cascatelle e Mulini di Canepa (Path of the Waterfalls and Mills of Canepa), which reaches the complex of the ancient water mills, is also of great scenic interest.

In ancient times, the Castrum Olnani stood here, whose etymology, according to some, is linked to the rich vegetation surrounding the Ausa stream, consisting of wild ash trees and hornbeams. Together with Fiorentino, Montegiardino and Faetano, Serravalle is one of the four castles that were conquered by San Marino during the last war in which San Marino took part in 1463, fought against the Malatestas on the side of the Papal League whose allies were the Montefeltro. The historic core of the castle stands on the site of the ancient Malatesta fortress, some traces of which remain in the structure of the bell tower. Piazza Giovanni Bertoldi commemorates the Franciscan monk from Serravalle who was responsible for the first Latin translation of the Divine Comedy. Serravalle is home to the San Marino Stadium and Multieventi Sport Domus sports facilities. In the hamlet of Dogana, the portal designed by architect Giancarlo De Carlo marks the state border. Characterized by a lively productive and commercial fabric, Serravalle has an ancient rural vocation, witnessed by Villa Manzoni, the country residence of the Counts Manzoni-Borghesi, whose original nucleus dates back to the 17th century. The territory is also renowned for its vineyards.

Before 1463, Domagnano was a border area and part of the eighth Gualdaria, an ancient division of the territory. Sterpeto is the birthplace of one of the first known Captains Regent, Filippo da Sterpeto. In 1892, the famous Treasure of Domagnano, a precious gold set attributable to a high-ranking Ostrogoth noblewoman, was found in Lagucci. The presence of settlements in Roman and Gothic times is also testified by the Villa di Domagnano, an archaeological site of considerable interest. A didactic arboretum has been set up in Cà Vagnetto, where it is possible to admire about 2000 plants of over 100 different species. At the Torraccia airfield, the San Marino Aeroclub offers tourist flights.

The historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Traditionally known as Mercatale, it was the extension of the city on the slopes of the mountain, a place dedicated to trade, full of shops, where important agricultural fairs and the weekly market were held, already documented in 1244. Famous in the past were also the wine cellars, where the San Marino Muscat was preserved and consumed. Worthy of mention are the Natural History Museum, the Sanctuary of the Beata Vergine della Consolazione designed by Giovanni Michelucci, the Civic Clock Tower by Francesco Azzurri, the Church of Sant'Antimo that preserves the painting depicting Saint Agatha carried in procession every year on 5 February. The Mercatale was joined to the city by the Costa dell'Arnella, whose name derives from the trees (ornielli) that lined it. Today the panoramic cable car connects Borgo Maggiore to the historic centre of the City of San Marino in just a few minutes.

Like Serravalle, Faetano and Montegiardino it became part of the Republic of San Marino in 1463. Its coat of arms is decorated with three red flowers, like the three peaks on which the ancient castles of Torricella, Fiorentino and Pennarossa stood. The ruins of the last two can be seen along the Castellaccio path. Of the ancient medieval fortress of Pennarossa (named after the colour of the rock on Monte Moganzio) remain some ruins, such as the two ancient cisterns dug into the rock. Monte Carlo saw the success of an epic feat performed by the aviator Gianni Widmeer, who landed his monoplane plane there in 191

Probably of Lombard origin, Montegiardino passed under the dominion of countless feudal lords up to the Malatesta family, from whom it was taken during the war of 1463 that assigned it to San Marino. On the advice of Federico da Montefeltro, the people of San Marino destroyed the castle for fear of insurrection. The name recalls the fertility of its soil, particularly suitable for agriculture, which had a strong impulse in the 19th century, when many rich families chose the location for their country residences. One of the symbols of the castle is the elm tree that stood at the entrance to the village until 1938, to which the "shouts" of the Malatesta family were posted and then the population gathered around it. The ancient village stands on a chalky relief and it is in the chalk that the Marano torrent has carved deep ripe slopes and suggestive cavities, which can be admired by following the Sentiero delle Coste path. Montegiardino also has an archery range.

Situated on the first foothills of the Apennines, the castle of Chiesanuova originates from the ancient castle of Busignano, whose inhabitants asked to be joined to San Marino in 1320. According to legend, a convent was built on the ruins of the castle of Busignano and its bell tower had a bell made of gold, which was buried by the monks before the convent was destroyed and never found again. The name derives from the construction of a new church in 1500. Piazza S. Conti houses the fountain "La voce nel canneto" (The voice in the reeds) designed by Tonino Guerra.

This is the first place where Saint Marino stopped, on his way up from Rimini along the Marecchia river in search of peace and solitude. The name derives from the spring waters with which, according to tradition, the saint baptised the first 53 Christians belonging to the family of Donna Felicissima. The Corte di Stirvano, which is part of the present territory of Acquaviva, is mentioned in the oldest document preserved in the State Archives, the Placito Feretrano of 885. The Montecerreto path crosses the park of the same name, which includes the archaeological area where the ruins of the ancient castle were found.

A beech tree stands out on the coat of arms of the castle of Faetano. In fact, it is thought that the place name "Castrum Faetani" or "Fegetani", derives from "fagus" or beech, even though the beech woods are no longer there today. It is said that after the fortress built by the Malatesta family was knocked down following its inclusion in the Republic in 1463, as a result of spontaneous submission, an enormous stone was built in place of the fortress, on which a large beech tree stood. In the early years of the last century, a sulphur mine was opened in Faetano, but it was closed after a few years because it was not productive enough. Sport fishing is practised at the artificial lake.

Elementi antichi del Castello di Serravalle


An ancient Roman settlement, in 1114 the castle belonged to the Church of Rimini; later it passed to Berardo da Maiolo, to the Municipality of Rimini, to the Vicariate of Santarcangelo, to the Holy See, then to the Malatestas and in 1463 to San Marino.
The historic centre of Serravalle is particularly attractive, carefully restored on what was once the ancient Malatesta fortress, although little remains of the original walls and buildings. The high quadrangular tower, or Torre del Mastio, now used as a bell tower, still retains traces of the ancient structure. The narrow streets and walls, faithful to the ancient medieval architecture, create an undoubtedly peculiar urban dimension.

Pennarossa Castle, on Mount Moganzio, is a very ancient site; its construction dates back to the early years of the year 1000. The fortress was purchased by the San Marino people in the first quarter of the 17th century, but it was probably already dilapidated and abandoned at the time of annexation. Nearby is the site of the Castellaccio di Fiorentino, with which it is connected by forest paths along the Toro ditch.

Montegiardino miele


Montegiardino Miele is the story of a family and its passion, the Guiducci family, who over time have been able to transform their love of nature and the world of bees into a profession, passing it on from father to son. A small dream born many years ago and now finally become reality. Fiorenzo Guiducci's passion for beekeeping began in 1979, when he found his grandfather's old equipment in a cupboard. At that moment he recalled memories of watching his grandfather breeding bees when he was a child: so, by rearranging the old equipment and investing a little money, he began to practice as a beekeeper.
He started with a couple of hives, and then saw them grow year by year, until they became not only his main passion but also his life's work. For Fiorenzo, "being a beekeeper means breathing in the scent of the forest, listening to the sounds of the birds and watching the flowers, whose colours and scents compete to attract the bees".

Centro storico di Montegiardino


An ancient mediaeval village, surrounded by luxuriant and splendid countryside stretching as far as the eye can see, with views of the mass of Mount Titano and the Adriatic coast. An unusual San Marino, off the classic tourist track: Montegiardino, the smallest and least populated Castle, a hamlet of just 3.31 km². The Castle dates back to the Longobard period, although artefacts from the Roman era have been found. Long owned by the Counts of Carpegna, it was later part of the vast domains of the Malatesta family, who fortified it.
Shortly after the middle of the 15th century Montegiardino passed within the borders of the Republic. Since then its time and appearance, almost unchanged, have been enclosed in the heart of the ancient Republic. In the alleys and lanes, among the light that hits the old buildings from the side and creates suggestive shadows, you can still breathe history and traditions, letting the strong vicissitudes of the alternating conquest of the territory show through. History is the essential focus and the inhabitants do not disdain the possibility of reliving intense emotions of the past in period settings, traditions of ancient trades, excursions and organised itineraries that are truly typical and characteristic. There is no written law, but the Castle offers the freedom to walk in silence to capture the smallest details and sleep in the old houses.

CAMMINO DEL TITANO - Itinerario tematico n. 3 Anello dei Gessi di Montegiardino


The network of footpaths makes it possible to explore the great variety of landscapes and natural environments and discover hidden corners. Small paths descend steeply into the narrow and shady riverbed and climb up it, wedging themselves between the chalky boulders, narrows and ravines that the water has sculpted over time by dissolving the calcium sulphate. One finds oneself immersed in a wild and dark environment where the water enters and exits from underground. The dark silhouettes of large wooden wild animals, sometimes moved by pulleys and counterweights, appear from time to time to make the place even more impressive, serving as targets in simulated bow and arrow hunts. Hidden by the vegetation are the ruins of an old water mill used for grinding cereals. Downy oak, hornbeam, locust and various species of poplar and willow accompany the path. Roe deer, badgers, porcupines, beech martens, foxes, small wild mice and tiny shrews leave their footprints in the mud.
