Mount Faito is a summit of the mountain range of Lattari which rises to 1131 meters. It can be reached by road or since 1952 by a gondola connected to the station of Castellammare di Stabia.
History and description
Mount Faito, mainly limestone, owes its name to the beech trees that grow on its slopes. Some are over four hundred years old and reach six meters.
Historically, its wood was exploited, notably by Ferdinand I of the Two Sicily, to supply the shipyard of Castellammare di Stabia and build ships there. Coolers also served to preserve food.
