The legends of the Dolomites
While the Dolomite mountain range has revealed many of its geological secrets, the origins of its ancient and hospitable people, the Ladin, is still shrouded in mystery. Living in the heart of the Dolomites, the Ladin have their own language, culture and traditions, as well as a rich repository of myths and legends, passed from father to son. These ancient stories are full of princesses and dragons, mountains and lakes, and are sure to enchant young and old alike. The ladins of the Dolomites don’t distinguish between “myth” and “legend”, they talk about “contìe”, true stories.
