San Marino, an idyllic enclave surrounded by Italian territory

San Marino pádel

The Serenissima Reppublica di San Marino is the oldest sovereign state in the world. It is one of the several microstates in Europe, specifically the third smallest, behind Vatican City and Monaco. Account with a population of 33,000 inhabitants approximately framed in little more than 60 square kilometers.

The culture of San Marino, due to its situation, is very similar to that of Italy and even more so to that of its contiguous regions: Emilia-Romagnán and Marche. The three towers of San Marino, are the most known point of interest in the country and are located on Mount Titano, which presides over the capital. The cable car ride through the highest peaks in the area is one of the great experiences that you can enjoy.

Other key points you can visit is the Piazza della Libertà, known as the heart of the town. In the center of this square stands a work known as the "Statue of Liberty". The church of San Francisco is another place you can not miss, as well as Las Fortalezas, known as La Guaita, Cesta and Montale. These three towers formerly protected the villagers living within their borders.

You can not leave San Marino without tasting some of its most traditional and exquisite dishes, the Torta Tre Monti, which represents the three towers mentioned above. For wine lovers, San Marino has a small industry dedicated to these wines.

For fans of motoring, at the Imola circuit, located in San Marino, you can pay tribute to one of the great legends in the history of Formula 1: Ayrton Senna, sadly died on the asphalt circuit in 1994.
