Church of San Quirino
Church in San Marino
The Franciscan Capuchin church of San Quirino was constructed around 1550 on the site of an ancient chapel dedicated to St. Quirinus. It was built in commemoration of Fabiano of San Savino’s unsuccessful attempt to occupy the city of San Marino on June 4, 1543, which happens to be the Feast Day of Saint Quirinus.
The church was consecrated in 1709, and during the Italian Resurgence, Garibaldi disbanded his legion under its porch.
In the square outside the church, there stands the monument to St. Francis, created in 1928 by Edoardo Collamarini. The statue itself is the work of Silvetrio Monteguti.
Inside the church, you can find the painting “Deposition of Christ” by Taddeo Zuccari.
