Faedo is a small and picturesque village in the province of Trento, situated in an enviable hilltop position overlooking the Adige Valley below, looks like a cluster of houses around the two main churches, guarded by the imposing façade of the castle and all around , regular rows of vineyards, which produce excellent wines, appreciated by the Romans and reported by the historian Suetonius.
Although the first mention of the village dates back to the VI century, during the clashes between Lombard and Franks, traces attest that the area was already inhabited since in the I century A.D. and was scenario of the battles between the Roman troops, led by the consul Domitian Lucatio Catullo and the Germanic tribes, under the leadership of King Koels, the latter were defeated and the Roman soldiers took possession of the fortress. In 1243 the Castle Monreale (or Konigsberg) was rebuilt on ​​the ruins of the ancient fortress, while the development of the village was recorded between the XII and XIII centuries, coinciding with the massive work of deforestation, which gave way to the immigration of settlers (rucantores), who were entrusted to cultivate the farmlands.
The area features numerous and interesting nature trails, on foot or by mountain bike for lovers of winter sports with the equipped ski slopes of Paganella and Bondone in the nearby.

- the Church of St. Agatha, mentioned in official documents since the XII century, was not consecrated until the XIV century. It is in Baroque style with Romanesque elements, preceded by an elegant Renaissance pronaos.
