A tiny little enclave in Italy, San Marino is nevertheless the oldest constitutional republic in the world. The monastic community got their independence from the Roman Empire no less. On 3 September 301 🙂
Their motto is Libertas – freedom 🙂
This is what it looks like in San Marino
starting to get the idea of how they managed to convince the Romans to leave them alone?
The theme is expended on with more walls, towers, cliffs and castles
and then people and monks can also call on a higher power
Nothing like a fire on a chilly spring morning..
Doesn’t matter how small your country is, you get your own international code and EU number plate. You can also put an Afrikaans word on your Italian car to make it more romantic…
San Marino – Build good walls + Write a good constitution + Pray = Freedom
Seems ‘Most Serene’ to me 🙂
