Since 2009, the Dolomites have belonged to the Natural World Heritage sites - one more reason for protecting the landscape of the Val Gardena valley.
It is worldwide the highest tribute for a natural monument to be added to the list of the Natural World Heritage sites. The reason why the Dolomites came to this honour were mainly the beauty of its landscape and the worldwide unique geomorphological importance.
