Faedo, village of nativity scenes

Trentino’s largest nativity scene with life-size figures

FAEDO, IL PAESE DEL PRESEPE

Faedo is home to Trentino’s largest nativity scene, Faedo, il paese del presepe. Step into the past in the old town centre, with its vaulted ceilings, narrow streets, cellars and arcades, a magical setting for eighty life-size statues depicting the daily activities of a farming community in days gone by. This unique experience will draw you into the magic of Christmas and introduce you to the typical features of a small village of timeless fascination. This year, as well as the various nativity scenes, you will find a craft market and the “Mercatino della Stella” Christmas market held in old barns and cellars - an atmosphere to explore and cherish.
