The Dolomites - UNESCO World Heritage

Formed 200 million years ago from primordial seas, today these fascinating mountains rise more than 3,000m tall toward the sky. 

The Dolomites are named after French geologist Deodat de Dolomieu (1750 - 1801), who first identified the unique composition of the rock. 
 
On 26 June 2009 the Dolomites became a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site for their monumental and unique beauty. 
 
The majestic Dolomite mountains offer a breathtaking setting for your winter holiday. 

The Dolomites offer diverse landscapes and shapes, a fact which the National Parks express in all their splendour. Magic around every corner, emotions everywhere.

The UNESCO Dolomites Foundation is the first Italian organisation to sign up to the Google Trekker Loan Program, so from today it will be possible to enjoy the Dolomites online.
