Dolomites

The name Dolomites comes from the French scientist Dèodat de Dolomieu who discovered and studied this unique mineral, a mixture of calcium and magnesium carbonate. The fascinating history of the Dolomites goes back over 250 million years, when these beautiful mountains where a coral reef with great structural complexity.

The Dolomites are famous across the world for their unique landscape. Nowhere else it is  possible to find such impressive contrasts and such a wealth of geological features in such a small area. On the 26th of June 2009 the pale mountains were officially included in UNESCO’s list of world cultural and natural heritage sites. A small part of the world that is well worth discovering…and these pictures will show you why…
