San Marino Fortress of Guaita
Guaita is one of three peaks which overlooks the city of San Marino, the capital of San Marino. The other two are De La Fratta and Montale.
Fortress of Guaita
The Guaita fortress is the oldest of the three towers constructed on Monte Titano, and the most famous. It was built in the 11th century and served briefly as a prison. It is one of the three towers depicted on both the national flag and coat of arms. San Marino also has a cake known as La Torta Di Tre Monti (Cake of the Three Mountains/Towers), as a symbol for the area. It is something of a layered wafer cake covered in chocolate.

impressive looking tower and taken from a POV that gives such a great impression of its size and majesty. Gloriously sharp and immaculately detailed and beautifully set against a blue sky. Stunning!

A fine capture of this formidable tower, the size of which we can estimate by the people on the left. The point of view is well chosen to emphasise the mass. The light has good light and colours. Excellent rendering of the detail in the old walls.

very interesting presentation from this rarely seen on TE country. I like the close view of the tower. It looks really impressive here. Well set against the blue sky. The shadow adds a 3D feeling.
Very well done,

This is a striking composition. The dark, grey stones of the tower against the dark blue sky almost knocks me out. The tower is absolutely magnificent and it makes me feel humble to realize it has been here for a thousand years. I appreciate that you managed to include some visitors at the bottom. The small patches of green on both sides of the tower are enjoyable too.

There are few such defensive towers in Europe, they have a nose for defense against cannon balls, beautifully preserved tower, excellent photo

You've chosen an interesting angle for this shot of that impressive tower.
With its sharp angle toward the camera, the tower looks slender and majestic.
Excellent sharpness and beautiful textures of the stone walls.
Best regards, Paul

Impressive tower, I am afraid it will crash me. fantastic composition, perfect colours. and the view around must be splendid too. Amazing stone walls.
Have you been also in San Leo? it is tiny village nearby, very interesting.

ottimo pov, la torre che domina dal Monte Titano č ancora molto bella e sfida gli anni in ottima forma.
Bello il tuo punto di vista, la luce ti ha dato una grossa mano e tu l'hai sfruttata al meglio.

A good upward pov with excellent sharpness and a superb angled pov showing 2 facades simultaneously. The man at left adds scale. Effective tight framing with adequate breathing space at top. The slight crop of the transmission towers at the top doesn't bother me. Tfs!

Attractive capture of the old tower. I like the way it fits perfectly with the stones. Well seen, have a fine afternoon.

A really interesting and powerful tower, I believe, with all those canons at the top. And very well preserved also. Good pov, light and colours!
