Cortina, history, culture and tradition
When thinking about Cadore, Cortina is certainly the first place that comes to mind. The fame associated to the pearl of the Dolomites has often overshadowed the name of this marvellous valley at the foot of the mountains and so close to Venice. A vast area comprising many councils and territories, and which welcomes numerous mountain communities, among which the Ladin community. So it seems belittling to only mention Cortina when talking about this area.
Cadore means nature, just think about the wonderful sceneries, like the one offered by lake Sorapiss, a natural lake at 1900 meters above sea level with a bright blue lakebed, the majestic view from the Tre Cime di Lavaredo looking on to the natural park of the Dolomiti di Sesto, or lake Misurina, reflecting like a mirror the over towering mountains.
Cadore means history, it was the stage for the resistance to the Austrian empire during the renaissance and of bloody battles on the Tofane during the First World War. A valley which was the birth place for many important names in our history and culture, like Tiziano Vecellio, whose native town, Pieve di Cadore, pays him homage every year organising exhibitions and artistic displays, or like Dino Buzzati, who celebrated the grandeur and magical atmosphere of these mountains in many of his literary works.
This is Cadore: a touristic destination who has reached its prime, consolidating its popularity through the years thanks not only to the many notorious personalities who every year stroll down the streets of Cortina, but especially thanks to its own character, which strengthened by the cohesion of the various communities that live here, have made this a unique and matchless area
