Photographer's Note

It is unknown when exactly the inhabitants of San Marino began building their fortresses on top of Mount Titano. The origins of the three fortresses are lost in legend. It is believed, however, that the First Tower of San Marino (on the photo), also known as Guaita, was the first of the three and was built around X century. It is surrounded by two tiers of circular walls and is a typical example of medieval military fortification.
