The Dolomite mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Ancient custodians of the history of the Earth
The rocks, crystals and fossils which abound in the Dolomite mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, recount the history of our Earth, tell of an era when incredible pressures forced the mountains to emerge from the sea to their majestic height. Today, the Dolomites stand in all their imposing majesty, with their towering peaks and unique stratification, with tall towers modelled over time immemorial by a succession of volcanic eruptions, glaciers and by the slow but inexorable action of the wind and rain. Come and discover the Dolomites of Trentino Alto Adige, one of nature’s greatest spectacles, which is today carefully preserved as one of the world’s truly unique sites.
