The pretty village of Taio is situated in the lower part of the Predaia Plateau, which slopes down to the valley floor

The village of Taio, an ancient Roman settlement, is situated amidst apple orchards and stretches across a large natural terrace overlooking the deep cut of the Noce River. Taio is also the administrative seat of the municipality of Predaia and one of the most important villages of the Val di Non valley. The name Taio probably comes from the Latin “talium” which means “place, where the wood was chopped”.

In the idyllic historical village centre numerous rural and lordly buildings, characteristic spots, bridges and portals can be found. The centre are the two churches, dedicated to Saint Victor and the Blessed Virgin Mary from the 12th century. In the surrounding of Taio the elegant Bragher Castle, one of the most beautiful castles in the whole Alpine region, is located. It is in private hands today. North of Taio the impressive Santa Giustina dam wall with a height of 152 m can be admired.

Part of the area of Taio are also the small villages Dardine, Dermulo, Mollaro, Segno, Torra and Tuenetto. At Segno there is also a museum, which is dedicated to Padre Eusebio Chini, researcher, missionary and probably the most famous citizen of the village.
