Illustration of Saint Marinus, the founder of the Republic of San Marino, and prominent cultural figure.
San Marino has just 61 km2, and a population estimated at 30,000 people. The capital is the City of San Marino. Actually, the state of San Marino was the continuation of the monastic community with its founding anniversary today.
After the Diocletian Chase, Marinus escaped to Mount Titano. Marinus was convinced of his Christianity and decided to build a small temple with stones from a nearby quarry. There remains what the city and the Republic of San Marino are today.
