The Dolomites are a mountain range located in northeastern Italy. The name “Dolomites” is derived from the famous French mineralogist Déodat Gratet de Dolomieu who was the first to describe the rock, dolomite, a type of carbonate rock which is responsible for the characteristic shapes and colour of these mountains; previously they were called the “pale mountains”. Within the mountain range is one national park and many other regional parks. In August 2009, the Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These 10 photos will show you just how stunning this place is.
