The Brenta Group, a Dolomite massif in the Adamello Brenta Nature Park, stretches from north to south for over 40 km.
The Brenta Dolomites in Trentino are a wonderful oasis of nature, sports and relaxation for those who love the mountains
On June 26, 2009, in Seville, the Dolomites were inducted into the UNESCO World Heritage List as a part of natural patrimony, with the following declaration of exceptional universal value:
“The nine components of The Dolomites World Heritage property protect a series of highly distinctive mountain landscapes that are of exceptional natural beauty. Their dramatic vertical and pale coloured peaks in a variety of distinctive sculptural forms is extraordinary in a global context. This property also contains an internationally important combination of earth science values. The quantity and concentration of highly varied limestone formations is extraordinary in a global context, whilst the superbly exposed geology provides an insight into the recovery of marine life in the Triassic period, after the greatest extinction event recorded in the history of life on Earth. The sublime, monumental and colourful landscapes of the Dolomites have also long attracted hosts of travellers and a history of scientific and artistic interpretations of its values.”
