Photographer's Note

At previous post I showed view of Fortress of Guaita from outside this time from inside.

The baroque coat-of-arms is stone situated over the entrance is that of the Republic and dated back to the 1600's before that it belonged to the Palazzo Pubblico (Public Palace). This remote fortress watches over the fifth smallest country in the world, and its internal wall stops at the Bell Tower on the other, where these elements were built centuries later. In the courtyard can be seen some pieces of artillery from World War II, two mortars, a gift from Vittorio Emanuele II, two 75mm canons fired by the Guardians of the Fortress during national festivities, a gift of Vittorio Emanuele III. It was registered as one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites in 2008, and the people of San Marino can be truly proud of their history, since this Fortress has been looking over them for centuries, and it shall continue to do so.
