Municipality of central Lessinia, about 730 meters above sea level, it was originally part of the 13 Cimbri municipalities with the name of Alferia. It is characterised by a typical configuration of the mid-mountain, large green areas dedicated to pastures alternating with hilly reliefs of ancient origin.
Cerro, due to its geographical position and its climate, is the ideal destination for walks, excursions and to practice sports while relaxing in unspoiled nature. Artefacts of prehistoric origin, found in the localities of Dosso Bertin, Vajo Squaranto, Nasa, Vajo della Busa and Còale del Mondo define the first inhabited area of Cerro dating back to the upper Paleolithic age (40,000-10,000 BC).
In recent decades it has gone from being a summer resort town, particularly coveted due to its proximity to the Veronese region and the pleasant climate, to a real town of residence, seeing the population increase significantly, especially families who have purchased their home here.
Among the natural monuments to visit there are the 'historical oak' in piazza della Chiesa, which gave rise to the current name of the town and the aforementioned 'Còale del Mondo' (karst cave of prehistoric origin). Walking a few steps from the town centre you can reach the "Cappella del Redentore" (Chapel of the Redeemer)', known among the residents as 'Monte della Croce'. From this hill overlooking the town you can enjoy a splendid 360 degree view over Lessinia and the Padana region. While the 'Giassàra di Cerro' in the locality of Carcereri represents one of the typical activities of the mountain people of the last century.
