Castel Maggiore is an Italian comune with 17,422 inhabitants in the province of Bologna located at about 9 kilometres northwards from the historic centre of the capital town, Bologna. Literally, its name means Major castle, but it is actually a corruption of the old name Castaniolo Maggiore. It is not uncommon for tourists to ask for the non-existent "castle" in Castel Maggiore.
