Valdragone is a village (curazia) in central San Marino. It belongs to the castello of Borgo Maggiore.

Geography[edit]

The village is divided into two areas: Valdragone di Sopra (Upper V.) and Valdragone di Sotto (Lower V.). It is situated close at the east of Borgo Maggiore and also close to Cailungo and Domagnano.

History[edit]

The name of Valdragone appears for the first time in historical documents of 1253. The Monastero di Santa Chiara was built from 1969-1971.

According to legend, the name "Valdragone" comes from stories of a dragon that appeared there.[1]
