CASTEL MAGGIORE Travel Guide
Castel Maggiore is a city of 18,298 inhabitants in the province of Bologna. In ancient times its name was Castaniolo, and its origins date back to the Roman imperial era, as evidenced by some discoveries made in the area. Given its position, Castel Maggiore was the scene of continuous battles: first the Gothic wars, then it passed under the control of the Exarchate of Ravenna, to be then invaded by the Longobards and the Franks. The name Castel Maggiore dates back to the beginning of the 1800s, and in this period the city experienced a period of industrialization, with the opening of a new mechanical and smelting workshop that was responsible for the construction of agricultural machinery and tools.

But Castel Maggiore, in addition to being a suitable place for quiet walks, is located in what is now known throughout the world as Motor Valley, a destination for motor enthusiasts and adrenaline activities. The streets of this area are among the most beautiful in the country, and have long been a destination for fans of two and four wheels looking for curves and breathtaking views. Moreover, just 15 kilometers from Castel Maggiore is Borgo Panigale, home of the famous Ducati motor home.
