Explore the Neoclassical architecture of Basilica del Santo Marino, the main church within the city. Although this structure was built during the 1800s, the first church that occupied this spot was constructed during the 4th century. Enter the basilica to see the three large naves, green Neoclassical interior, numerous paintings, statues, and altars. Head back outside to see the Chiesa di San Pietro next to the front steps. This small building was built in 600 and reputedly houses the beds of San Marino and San Leo. Inside, look for a statue dedicated to St. Peter and a monument to Pope John XXII.

  • This neoclassical style basilica is a simple design compared to many of the ornate basilicas. It is dedicated to Saint Marinus, the founder and patron of the Republic. Entry is free.

  • It was a surprise to see it internally. In fact, I didn't think it was so beautiful! Outside it is just as beautiful and the square that surrounds it is also very beautiful
  • Very dignified Basilica with modest but charming interior. Basic decorum is required, so if you're wearing a skirt, they might not let you in. Inside everyone was silent and respectful.
