Loc. 10
Plan de Corones.

 

Plan de Corones - The Plan de Corones, above all a skiing tourist locality, is a massif shaped like a bread bun, of volcanic origin, and which marks the north-western border of the Dolomites. Thanks to its extension, it provides a wide-angle view of the surrounding mountains. Since 2015, it has been home to one of the mountain museums set up by the extreme rock climber, Reinhold Messner. The name "Plan de Corones" alludes at the legendary crowning of princess Dolasilla, the brave warrior heroine of Ladin legends.
