    Blessed Margaret of Citta di Castello is often referred to as “Blessed Margaret of Castello”. This is incorrect - there is no town or locality in Italy called “Castello”. Citta di Castello (“castle town”) is the town where she was abandoned by her parents and where she became a Dominican tertiary and was recognized as a very holy and charitable woman and miracle worker.
