Palazzo Pubblico, City of San Marino
Atop Mount Titan and overlooking the valley, Palazzo Pubblico represents the center for everything official and political in the city. Restored in 1996, the medieval architecture and preserved clock tower feature icons and symbols of the country, including coats of arms. Generally you cannot go inside the building because of administrative proceedings, but if you linger long enough you may be able to watch the changing of the guards, which happens throughout the day. After your visit, stroll through the adjacent square. See Palazzo Pubblico and all City of San Marino has to offer by arranging your trip with our City of San Marino day trip tool .

Palazzo Pubblico Reviews
Centro carino ma con poche attività...negozi e ristoranti fanno da padrona. Ci si può venire quando non si ha nulla da fare more »Nice center but with a few activities... Shops and restaurants are the mistress. There you can come when you have nothing to do
Questo palazzo sembra appartenere a un mondo fiabesco, un pò come tutta San Marino. Peccato non averlo visitato. more »This building seems to belong to a fairytale world, a little like all of San Marino. Too bad I didn't visit him.
The current building was built between 1884 and 1894. It was designed by the Roman architect Francesco Azzurri whose marble bust we can see under the porch, to the right . The Coat-of-arms of the Republic is visible between the two small windows of the mezzanine. In the corner, also at the mezzanine level, there is a bronze statue of Saint Marino. The bell tower bears images of Saint Agata, Saint Marino and Saint Leo positioned above the clock.
The guards are super nice and friendly. Opens at 9, so stop in any time after. It does close early, but the guards are still standing outside and will take pictures with you if you ask nicely. They have a gun given to them from queen Victoria on the one standing guard.
