Fortress of Guaita[edit]

The Guaita fortress is the oldest of the three towers constructed on Monte Titano, and the most famous. It was built in the 11th century and served briefly as a prison, and was registered as a World Heritage Site in 2008.[1] [2]

It is one of the three towers depicted on both the national flag and coat of arms.
