The origins of Massa San Nicola date back to the 18th century. This abandoned village is the smallest among those scattered in this territory. Around the village, grow plantations of oranges and mandarins and this was the main activity together with the extraction of perfumed essences.
Some owners allow the forgotten apartments in concession and so, along the streets of the village, we met one of the people who guard it.
In spite of many proposals for upgrading it, Massa San Nicola, although covered each December 6th from the procession during the feast of St. Nicholas, is only a place for motocross and mountain biking.
