Cesta (Second tower)

San Marino Cesta

Second fortress (Cesta)

Fortress tower with weapons museum

The second fortress, Cesta or Fratta, was built in the first half of the 13th century and renovated multiple times before being restored to its original look in 1925. Located on Monte Titano at an altitude of 755 metres, the Cesta was erected on the ruins of a former Roman fort. The second circle of defence walls dates back to the 15th century. Remarkable, as with the other two fortress towers, is the very rare pentagonal layout of the central keep that might have been unique for the time. Today, the Cesta is home to the Museum of Historical Weapons, where, inter alia, armours, swords and arquebuses from medieval times to the 19th century are on display.
