Parco Nazionale Dolomiti Bellunesi
"There is no landscape in the world that changes so strikingly as the Dolomites": so wrote, in 1864, the Englishmen, Gilbert and Churchill, among the first "explorers" of the Dolomites.
Today these landscapes, now Unesco world heritage sites, are known to everyone. One area however still remains particularly fascinating and wild and is able to produce the same surprises and convey the same emotions enjoyed by early nineteenth-century travellers: the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park.
An enchanted world of cliffs and woods, plateaus full of sunshine and dark canyons, raging waters and arid stony ground; 31,000 hectares of wilderness less than 100 km from Venice, with an incredible array of flowers and plants and extraordinary wildlife.
The park is located in the southern part of the province of Belluno, between the valleys of the Cismon Torrent to the west and the River Piave to the east.
Feltre hosts the headquarters of the Park and it is one of the main gateways to the protected area.
