De La Fratta or Cesta is one of three peaks which overlook the city of San Marino. The other two are Guaita and Montale. The tower 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. It was constructed in the 13th century on the remains of an older Roman fort. Just like other two towers in San Marino, it is also depicted on the national flag.

Just as beautiful as the First Tower, it is absolutely recommended to visit it, even if it is a bit tiring to reach it, but nothing so difficult. At the moment, however, it is closed btw

Well worth the money to climb the tower and get incredible views from the top. There are only regular stairs to climb this tower. The best views this tower affords, are those over the town, rather than of the surrounding countryside, which are also incredible and vast. It's great to be able to see most of the city splayed out over the mountain from this tower.

Broch of Gurness

The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.

The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
