History

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. Today Borgo Maggiore contains the nation's only heliport. 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.
