The Three Towers of San Marino are a group of towers located on the three peaks of Monte Titano in San Marino. They are depicted on both the national flag and coat of arms.
The Guaita is the oldest of the three towers, and the most famous. It was constructed in the 11th century and served briefly as a prison. It was rebuilt numerous times and reached its current form in the 15th century.
The Cesta is located on the highest of Monte Titano's summits. A museum to honor Saint Marinus, created in 1956, is located in this tower and showcases over 1,550 weapons dating from the Medieval Era to the modern day.
The Montale is located on the smallest of Monte Titano's summits and it is not open to the public. It was constructed in the 14th century to give protection against the increasing power of the Malatesta family in that region.
