Castelmagno, colloquially called Il Castello (the castle) or Dän Gradt (the city), is the capital city of the Republic of Lecrotia. It is the country's largest and most populous city, with over 720,000 residents, while the population of its urban area is estimated to be more than 735,000. The Metropolitan area of Philipton is estimated to have more than 750,000 inhabitants. In the borough of Cantagallo, there is the Castelmagno International Airport, Lecrotia's busiest airport.
While being a first-order city, therefore not subordinate to the District of Castelmagno, the city also serves as capital city of that district.
Castelmagno was founded in 327 as Forum Caesaris, a small port in the East coast. In 1794, after the Lecrotian victory in the Lecrotian War of Independence, the city was selected as Capital City.
At the beginning of the 19th Century, the city saw a population boom thanks to the newly-born industries.
