Centa San Nicolò

833 m. s.l.m.

“Centa” is named after the stream running through the town, while the suffix “San Nicolò” is more recent and honors the patron of the Church.
Located on the western side of the Plateau at 833 m a.s.l., this unique town comprises
a multitude of farmsteads and hamlets whose names are mirrored in the surnames of the people.
The birth of the town was first mentioned in a 1216 deed through Federico Vanga, the Price-Bishop of Trento, awarded the mountain lying between Folgaria and Centa to Urico and Enrico of Bolzano, so they could build as many farmsteads or courtyards as possible and thus increase the fertility and population of the area.
