The "Town in Bloom"
At 746 metres above sea level, Transacqua, with its nearly 2100 inhabitants, is the largest town in the Primiero area. The town and its two hamlets of Pieve and Ormanico enjoy a beautiful panoramic view over the surrounding mountains. Among its many important features, its carefully tended green spaces and pleasant and well-designed town centre have earned Transacqua the international "Comune Fiorito" (Town in Bloom) award.
In the 15th century, Transacqua was an important mining centre with about 500 mining shafts producing silver, copper and silver-bearing lead.
