Where and what are the Dolomites?
The Dolomites are a wonderful mountain group of about 16 km² located in the Italian Eastern Alps, south of the main chain of the Alps. They are extending over the three northernmost regions of Italy: Trentino - Alto Adige, Belluno and Friuli - Venezia Giulia.
The awesome bright colour and the red reflection of the Dolomia rock, admirable mainly during the sunset, are caused by the high content of the mineral dolomite MgCa(CO3)2. This name is due to the French naturalist Déodat de Dolomieu (1750 - 1801) who discovered and studied this unique rock.
