Rimini Sights and Landmarks Guide, Italy
Rimini, Sights – Ancient Monuments
The most famous Italian resort of the Adriatic Sea, Rimini is a great destination for those who love both amazing natural scenery and centuries old monuments. The interesting part about Rimini Sights is that they offer more than sandy beaches and warm, pleasant waters. As the rest of Italian towns, Rimini still preserves important Roman remnants such as the Roman Amphitheatre or the Tiberius Bridge. If the presence of these sights is not enough to impress you, maybe the fact that the Tiberius Bridge is still used today, being perfectly preserved, might do the trick. On the other hand, engineers today are still bewildered by the schemes that Roman used in order to erect such an outstanding and durable construction.
Rimini, Sights – Churches & Castles
The Sismondo Castle was built in the XVth century at the orders of Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, symbolizing for a long time the city in itself and its power. Nowadays, however, only the central part has been preserved, but it still does the job of impressing through its massiveness. The part that has survived is the very entrance in the city with a mobile bridge and embellished with Malatesta’s family’s gilt spurs. For those of you that appreciate and relish the treasure of medieval churches Rimini Sights has a number of special ones in store: Saint Augustus Church or Malatesta’s Temple. These holy buildings are embellished by beautiful paintings of renowned Renaissance artists. Therefore, you are in for a true lesson of culture and history, leaving Rimini spiritually richer.
