San Marino 13. The government buildings and plaza

Here’s San Marino’s government offices, known as Palazzo Pubblico della Repubblica di San Marino

Here is the back, plus the office cars

This iconic building features on stamps, and a lot of the brochures shows this place.

There isn’t a king or a president or prime minister. Instead, a local council votes on two leaders known as a “Captains Regent”, both will serve for 6 months. This happens on April and October of each year.

This is one of the oldest democracies in the world. Back to AD301 in fact.

This country has a football team that always loses, and is sometimes takes part on Eurovision.

There is also a really superb view of the south west side of the county from up here.
