The Dolomites

Los Dolomitas

The Dolomites, better known as the Pale Mountains, are part of the Italian Eastern Alps and stretch between the provinces of Belluno, Bolzano, Trento, Udine and Pordenone. These mountains cover an area of more than 90 km and ranging from the Brenta Dolomites to the group formed by the Rosengarten and the Latemar, between Alto Adige and Trentino; from the Sesto Dolomites to the “Pale di San Martino”; from the Marmolada to the group of Pelmo and “Croda da Lago”, to get to the Friulian Dolomites, the most eastern of all. Of incomparable beauty, these mountains are the result of their geology, which results to be very different than the rest of the Alps and to most of the mountains of the planet, especially as regards the difference geologic that consists in the combination of two different types of rocks, volcanic and dolomite. The term Dolomite derives from their discoverer, Deodat de Gratet de Dolomieu that during his trip to Rome picked up an unusual rock type in the Isarco Valley, a limestone rich in dolomite. This rock during the day changes its color: white at the dawn, rosé and red fire at sunset thanks to enrosadira’s effects, a phenomenon resulting by the storage of shells, corals and algae that covered these mountains that was covered by the sea about 250 millions of years ago. Meeting point between different cultures (Italian, German and Ladin) these mountains offer a tourism for all needs.
