The Dolomites take their name from the French naturalist Déodat de Dolomieu (1750-1801) who first described the rock type, later called Dolomia in his honor, which characterizes the region. Much of the fascination and the beauty of these mountains derives from the type of the rock of which they are made. The slopes turn all shades of red at sunset, covered by a blanket of soft white snow and surrounded by flourishing woods and uncontaminated nature; the perfect natural setting for the small towns scattered through the valleys.
