    Bell tower

    San Leo

    The bell tower rises solitary on the hill known as “Monte della Guardia”, one of the two peaks of the crag on which stands San Leo. Like all the town’s monuments it was fashioned directly from a rocky outcrop.

    Together with the other buildings it made up the “Cittadella Vescovile”, the Episcopal Citadel: the historic residence of the Bishop of Montefeltro, it was destroyed in the mid-fourteenth century by the Malatestas. The square perimeter encompasses a much older circular building.


    Usually closed to the public, is open during holiday periods or during events.
