Nave San Rocco
Important crossing point in the past, now specialised in agriculture
The settlement of Nave San Rocco owes its name - nave is the Italian word for a ship - to the ferry that once transported goods and people across the river here, which in the past lent importance to the town as a crossing point.
One of the characteristics of Germanic culture, a vestige of their rule, can still be seen in the land surrounding the town: the farmhouses are not grouped around the village but instead follow the South Tyrolean pattern of being scattered throughout the countryside.
This little town now specialises in agricultural produce, especially apples.
