The Path of the Saint Marino

The Path of the Saint Marino is part of a broader project for the valorisation of Republic of San Marino as a destination for religious tourism, pilgrimage, prayer and devotion in the footsteps
of the Holy Founder, with a different gaze than the conventional one.

San Marino is therethe only Holy Founder of a State and Patron of a Republic and of a Diocese,
which bears his name together with his co-patrons San Leone and Sant'Agata.

Marino was the point of reference for the birth and development of oldest republic in the world existing today. The Christians of this nation have always venerated with particularity
devotion, still alive today in the faithful, the memory of the presence of San Marino in the territory
of the Republic, which takes its name from him, and have carefully preserved his relics
currently preserved in the Basilica del Santo: the beating heart of the religious life of the State
of the Titan and which also represents a place of great importance for its civil history.

The Path of Santo Marino retraces the steps of the Saint, originally from the island of Rab – Nella
Northern Dalmatia: the pilgrimage of faith, history and culture starts from this place
in the footsteps of the Patron and Founder of the Republic who bears his glorious name. At the end of
3rd century Saint Marino came to Italy together with San Leo, for the reconstruction of the walls of
Rimini, and from here he went up and settled in the Republic of San Marino.
The path then continues towards San Leo, the fortified city located on Mount Feretrio,
founded by the saint of the same name, friend and traveling companion of San Marino, and finally, it reaches
Pennabilli, episcopal seat of the Diocese, San Marino – Montefeltro.
