The Pale di San Martino

The Pale di San Martino is one of the Dolomitic mountain groups that have become a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009. Elegant and majestic, the Pale dominate the gaze of the mountaineer. The highest peaks exceed three thousand meters in height and form a wonderful circular crown bordered by a plateau.
The central area of the Pale di San Martino is a huge, empty, rocky, vast and hidden plateau only partially included in the Park. It is about 10 kilometers long and 5 kilometers wide and extends at an altitude between 2,500 and 2,700 meters. A marked tectonic fracture crosses it from west to east: the Riviera Manna. Its surface does not have major differences in height, but bears the signs of surface waters, which have affected it by forming small depressions.
