The Dolomites, UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Dolomites, part of the southern Limestone Alps, are characterised by rugged and bizarre rock formations and can hearken back on a 200-million-year long history. Imposing rocks and majestic peaks characterise the Dolomites, also referred to as "Pale Mountains". At sunset they appear in a red light, which is an amazing natural spectacle. However, due to the beauty and special geology, which gives an insight into several different stages of the history of earth, the Dolomite mountains have officially been added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site list on June 26, 2009.
