Castelnuovo Magra (Ligurian: Castarnò) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of La Spezia in the Italian region Liguria, located about 90 kilometres (56 mi) southeast of Genoa and about 15 kilometres (9 mi) east of La Spezia.
The municipality of Castelnuovo Magra contains the frazioni (subdivisions, mainly villages and hamlets) Colombiera, Molicciara, Palvotrisia, Molino Del Piano and Vallecchia.
Roman presence is testified by ruins of a domus agricola (countryside estate) from imperial times. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, it was held by the bishops of Luni; the name of the borough appears for the first time in a document from 1203.
The town was visited by Dante Alighieri on 6 October 1306, to end a long series of conflicts between the bishops of Luni and the Marquis Malaspina and opened a new course in local history.
