    The history of these valleys goes back thousands of years  and the Ladin culture with its age-old traditions is still very much alive in the typical architecture of the viles (farming villages), the graffiti decorations and the traditional costumes. The Ladin language  is still spoken today and taught in schools to remind the younger generations of the origins of their people.

    The Dolomites have been listed as an UNESCO World Heritage site since 2009. The site of the Dolomites comprises a mountain range in the northern Italian Alps, numbering 18 peaks which rise to above 3.000 metres and cover 141.903 ha, including three regions and five provinces (Trento, Bolzano, Belluno, Pordenone and Udine)

     

    The name of these mountains, deriving from the dolomite mineral which was discovered here by the French scientist Déodat de Dolomieu (1.750- 1.801). The Dolomites are composed of calcium and magnesium carbonate. The particular mineralogical composition is the reason for the natural phenomenon called Alpenglow or "Enrosadira" in Ladin language. At sunset the mountains are being illuminated in magnificent shades of red, from pink to orange and carmine.

     

    Alta Badia is situated in the middle of two natural parks, which belong to the UNESCO World Heritage.

     :: Natural park Puez-Odle

     The witness of the geological history of the Dolomites

     :: Natural park Fanes-Senes-Braies

     The natural park, is the glowing face of the Dolomites
