In the spirit of sharing true experiences of the soul, on April 20th, 2023, the first itinerary dedicated to the Founding Saint of the Republic of San Marino was inaugurated: The Walk of Saint Marinus. The Walk of Saint Marinus is an 80-km-long itinerary divided into four stages; visitors can cover them on foot or, in some sections, by bicycle. The Walk starts at Rimini and passes through San Marino and many different towns in the San Marino and Montefeltro area, well-known for their religious, historical, cultural, natural and scenic value.
Along the walk’s 20 km in the territory of San Marino, visitors can see iconic spots that have a special place in the hearts of Sammarinese people. The Church of Acquaviva is meaningful as tradition says that Saint Marinus baptized his followers here with the spring water that flowed from the rock; today a modern fountain embellishes the spot. There is also the Sacellum of Saint Marinus, the first place that hosted Marinus and where he founded the Republic. Upon reaching the old town center, you will find the Basilica of Saint Marinus, where inside behind the altar towers a statue of Saint Marinus and a small urn contains the bones of the saint.
