The Cesta Tower is the second fortress tower of San Marino. It was constructed in the 13th century. It's located on the highest of the three peaks of Mt. Titano. The best view of the Guaita Tower is from Cesta and vise versa.

A stroll to the top is highly recommended. Safe and fun for kids also. Stop for an ice cream and you'll have happy kids.

Combined with a tour of the first tower, this is worth a short visit. It houses the armoury and weapons museum, but not much is in English. It is interesting for a short visit. Or a long one of you are into medieval weapons. Good...More
