Some places to visit (more info on official web-site of Trentino)

DOLOMITE MONTAINS

 

Trentino and Alto Adige are famous for their Dolomite mountains. The Dolomites get their name from the rock that causes their unique shape and colour. Named after French mineralogist Deodat Gratet de Dolomieu, dolomite is a sedimentary rock mainly formed from carbonate minerals. The molecular properties of the mineral give the mountains their rugged pinnacles and rosy color. Picture shows the famous “Pale di San Martino”, located two hours drive from Trento.

 

CASTLES

 

Trentino and Alto Adige valleys are scattered with fine Castles. They can be easily view from the valley when driving or railing. Most of them can be visited and sometimes they host a museum.
