The Three Towers of San Marino are visible from a great distance when you drive through this country. Each of these medieval structures have their own “character”, name and history. The names of the towers are: Guita, Cesta and Montale.
Somewhere I’ve read that the San Marino walls mimics the Chinese wall. Initially, I thought that it was a slightly exaggerated statement, but when I searched for compositions for my photos this thought seemed true. The complex of the city walls, three towers and the city centre of San Marino itself was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The gossip however, is that it’s the least visited country in the world.
It was much like a fairy tale for us, walking on the streets of San Marino. As the centre is on rocky hill, from which you can see all the valleys around, it was like living over the clouds. My favourite time in San Marino was during the sunrise. It was a perfect time to capture the famous San Marino – Three Towers, each located on top of three separate hills.
