Second Tower (Cesta)


It is the second Tower built in San Marino. It was erected over the remains of an ancient Roman fortress and was subsequently incorporated into the impressive city walls in the XVI century. Its construction dates back to the beginning of the XIII century. Situated on the top of Mount Titano (which rises 750 metres above sea level), it offers breathtaking views over the underlying landscape. Like that of the other two towers, its central body has a pentagonal plan, what makes it very different from any other building in San Marino. It is now the seat of the Museum of Ancient Weapons, which contains precious hoplological finds which date back to the period between the XIII and the XIX century.
