Towns & Places

San Leo


The rocky pinnacle of San Leo soars high above the foothills of the central Italian Apennines, not far inland from the city of Rimini. The town itself is a cluster of ancient cottages nestled between a magnificent mediaeval fortress and a prominent watchtower which casts its inquisitive gaze on the whole surrounding territory, and is the protagonist of an extraordinary number of mysterious pagan and sacred legends.
