Rimini is the capital city in the Province of Rimini located on the Adriatic Sea in Italy. It occupies around 134 square kilometres of land area and has a population of around 142 thousand people. The start of the civilised inhabitation of Rimini happened in around 300BC when the Romans took occupancy and called the city Ariminum. The inhabitation was seen as a move to protect the land from Gaul armies due to its defensive position.
Rimini is primarily a resort town, probably due to its enormously popular 15 kilometre long beach which led to the building and opening of over one thousand hotels in the city as well as many bars, clubs and restaurants in the city. Tourists come to the city to relax and take advantage of the sun, sea and sand it offers as well as explore the historical significance of Rimini through its many old and even ancient buildings and monuments.
Perhaps the most popular of all the tourist attractions in the form of buildings in Rimini is the Tempio Malatestiano which is the catholic cathedral church in Rimini. It was built in the 1200s for use as a Gothic church and due to damage was reconstructed and repaired in during the middle of the 15th century. Many other buildings and historical sites exist in the city like the Tiberius Bridge, roman amphitheatre and a great number of churches that date all the way through history from as early as 12 AD.
