A lovely outdoor place, where several events and activities of San Marino are held, the Cava dei Balestrieri is one attraction you will come across several times while exploring other piazzas of the city. One of the most popular events here is that of shooting bows and arrows, that is also considered to be a traditional activity of the region. During this event, performers are traditionally dressed and put up a lovely, delightful presentation. It is a huge wall-like quarry, very unlikely to miss while exploring San Marino. The quarry was opened back in the 19th century for restoration process of the Palazzo Pubblico. It is from the rocks cut here, that the palace was restored!
