Faedo is a typical little mountain village, characterized by two churches and a mighty castle.
The most impressive witness of the animated past of Faedo is undoubtedly Castle Monreale, which is also referred to as “royal mountain”, at the place of which in Roman times there was a castle complex. The original castle dates back to the year 1243 AD. The battles between German and Roman people, the Longobard and Bavarian settlements in early Middle Ages as well as colonialization have greatly contributed to the growth of the village along the famous Via Claudia Augusta.
Also its enviable position at the slopes above the Val d’Adige valley has pulled its weight to the hostorical importance of Faedo. Its location makes the village a real jewel, particularly for those who seek relaxation and recreation.
