The Brenta Dolomites – World Heritage Site
The Brenta Dolomites rise at the western end of the Dolomite area and look like a dolomite island. The massif has a north-south development 40 kilometres long and 12 kilometres wide. Its natural boundaries are VAL DI SOLE to the north, Val di Non to the east and Paganella, Valli Giudicarie to the south and Valle Rendena to the west. The entire Brenta group is included in the territory of the NATURAL PARK ADAMELLO BRENTA. Unlike other Dolomite groups, where everything is slender lines and plasticity of masses, this superb ridge of limestone and dolomitic rocks has majestic and austere shapes, where the rocky walls culminate in peaks and dihedrons of the most varied shapes and sizes.
