City of San Marino
"Due to its being the capital and previously the only city in San Marino, the history of this city is almost the same as the History of San Marino."
Gain More Background About the Country
"The country takes its name from Marinus, a stonemason originating from the Roman colony on the island of Rab, in modern-day Croatia. In 257 AD Marinus participated in the reconstruction of Rimini's city walls after their destruction by Liburnian pirates. Marinus then went on to found an independent monastic community on Monte Titano in 301 AD; thus, San Marino lays claim to be the oldest extant sovereign state as well as the oldest constitutional republic."
"The only countries in the world that have a smaller land area than San Marino are: The Vatican state, Monaco, Nauru and Tuvalu. Thus, San Marino is the world’s fifth smallest country."
"Although Italian-speaking and heavily influenced by the surrounding Italian culture, the Sammarinese have maintained their individuality through the centuries, have a strong sense of identity, and are proud of their unique culture."
