Dogana is a town and a civil parish (curazia), whose name means 'Customs House'; it is found in the north-eastern corner of San Marino in the Serravalle municipality ('castello'). The town is the most populated settlement in the republic.
It has a population of roughly 7,000. Because of its size, in 2006 it asked to split away from Serravalle and become its own castello, but in 2007 the proposal was refused. Partial autonomy is seen in Dogana's having its own postal code (47891), while the rest of Serravalle carries 47899.
Dogana is the main entry point for travellers arriving into San Marino from Italy (by freeway no. 72 from Rimini). Although Dogana means customs house in Italian, there are no border formalities anywhere on the border between Italy and San Marino.
The local football team is the Juvenes.
