Borgo Maggiore (Italian pronunciation: [ˈborgo madˈdʒoːre]; Romagnol: E Bórgh) is one of the 9 communes or castelli of San Marino. It lies at the foot of Monte Titano and has a population of 6,871 (May 2018), making it the second largest town of San Marino, after Dogana.
From Italian borgo ("village, hamlet") + maggiore ("bigger, greater; major").
The area was previously called Mercatale ("marketplace") and remains today the most important market town in San Marino. A cable car allows Monte Titano to be scaled up to the town of San Marino. Though it is not the most populated, the Market, as well as the connection to San Marino City, make it very much a city-like shopping hub.
Borgo Maggiore has 6 parishes (curazie):
