Nature and Culture

Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Dolomites have been enchanting humans for centuries. Their striking beauty makes them one of the most astonishing works of nature. Plants such as gentian and arnica grow on the sunny meadows, whilst in the high cliffs chamois and golden eagles live in extreme conditions. An astounding habitat protected under the auspices of the Natural Parks of Fanes-Senes Braies and Puez-Odle.

This is the legendary mountain landscape that the Ladin-speaking people call home, alongside German and Italian speakers. Their centuries-old traditions are today evident in handicrafts, agricultural techniques and in the kitchen. With its varied and distinctive countryside and people, Alta Badia never fails to impress visitors.
