CATINACCIO MOUNTAIN GROUP | DOLOMITES

Torri del Valolet, Catinaccio Dolomites

The Catinaccio group (Rosengarten-Gruppe or simply Rosengarten in German; Ciadenac in Ladin) is a massif of the Dolomites, located between the Valle di Tires/Tierstal, the Val d'Ega/Eggental, and Val di Fassa. Parts of the group are protected by the Parco Naturale dello Sciliar/Naturpark Schlern, one of seven Natural Parks in South Tyrol.

The Catinaccio group is well known for the pink tinge that its rocks take on at dusk, a phenomenon known as enrosadira in Ladin – an idiom somehow encompassing a combination of both Italian and German.

The major valleys in the mountain chain are (from W to E) the Val di Vael, the Val di Vajolet, the Val di Udai, the Val di Dona and the Val Duron. The Catinaccio group in the territories of Trento Province and Bolzano Province (South Tyrol).
