The history of this region is shrouded in legends and myths, and its enchanting beauty continues to captivate its visitors up to this day. The Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park, with its 25,453 hectares, is the third largest nature park in South Tyrol and was only founded in 1980. Lush mountain meadows with arnica, gentian and daisies, dense forests with spruce, pine and larch, high rock faces, karstified plateaus and wide lush alpine pastures alternate here in a rich contrast. Stone martens, marmots, eagles, chamois, ibexes and many other animals have their home here. The Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park has been part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage since 2009 and is part of the European network of protected areas Natura 2000, which protects the flora and fauna. The heart of the nature park are the Fanes and Senes alpine pastures and Prato Piazza/Plätzwiese with its unique view of this natural paradise.
