Park of the Belluno Dolomites

Wild territories of silent beauty

At the fringes of the better known and more visited Ampezzo Dolomites, the Belluno Dolomites National Parkis an environment rich in natural treasures of inestimable value, ready to be discovered.

The variety of landscapes offered by these mountains is particularly striking during summer time, when the rolling plateaus and grassy peaks transform into a profusion of colors due to the flourishing blooms. The Moretti's Campanula flower is the most striking of all, so much so that it has become the symbol of the Park. The Sun Mountains represent the wild and mysterious heart of the Belluno Dolomites and boast spectacles of incredible beauty such as the Soffia Waterfalls and the extraordinary Cadini del Brenton. Visitors are particularly attracted by the geological and geo-morphological phenomena abundantly present within the Park, such as the characteristic "potholes" of the Brenton brook and the "cirques" of the Feltre Peaks, traces of ancient glaciers which have now disappeared.

In spite of the untouched wild character of these mountains, historical sites are also present. The extremely ancient Charter House of Vedana, near the lake bearing the same name, is one of the most important monuments of the Belluno province and it is still even today the home of a small community of nuns. Also possessing great historical value are the Valle Imperina Mines, an ancient mining center which for centuries characterized the economy of the Agordo region.
