San Martino Siccomario is a comune in the Province of Pavia in the Italian region Lombardy, located about 35 km south of Milan and about 4 km southwest of Pavia. It is now effectively part of Pavia metropolitan area.
According to legend, St. Martin of Tours lived here as a child; in the 9th century a monastery entitled to the saint existed here. Later it was a fief of the Beccaria family (see Montù Beccaria) and other families. In 1743 it was annexed to the Kingdom of Sardinia (Piedmont), remaining the boundary with the Austrian-controlled Lombardy-Venetia until 1859.
