Natural World Heritage Site Dolomites
On 26th June 2009 the Dolomites officially became a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.
The range of mountains situated between the Adige and Piave rivers and between the Val Pusteria and the Belluno valleys, is dominated by the mighty peaks of the Dolomites, the kingdom of the "pale mountains".
The landscape is electrifying and unforgettable; pale castles of rock rise up from the relatively untouched green fields and forests below where flowers and fresh water abound, picturesque alpine huts burnished over the centuries nestle in the valley.
The Dolomites were formed 200 million years ago in the primeval oceans. Today they reach 3000 metres into the sky and take their name from the rock (dolomite) which is unique to this area.
Alta Badia has two UNESCO heritage areas, the Puez - Odle national park and the Fanes - Senes - Braies national park.
