The Legend: the creation of Monte Titano

A legend says that the creation of Monte Titano, on which the city of San Marino stands, is due to terrible giants called “Titans”.

These were sons of a brother of the god Saturn, uncle of Zeus, who was on Olympus.

The Titans decided to attack him while he slept and to climb the sky they began to pile boulders on top of each other, but Zeus was warned and made them fall to Earth.

Only the mountain made of boulders remained, which for this reason was called Titan.
This is just one of the mysteries that surround our Republic.

During ours guided tourist visits anecdotes and curiosities of the oldest Republic in the world will also be told. Also discover the Legend of Marino and the bear!!
