Experiencing and enjoying Braies

Highlights in Valle di Braies, the Braies Dolomites and in the nature park Fanes-Senes-Braies

Braies stretches into the Valle di Braies and nestles in the Braies Dolomites. A large part of the parish is situated in the nature park Fanes-Senes-Braies. The landscape is shaped by the most varied karst formations: Grooves and crevices, depressions, fissures and Dolomite basins create a diverse landscape. At the head of the valley is lake Lago di Braies (1494 m), which is overshadowed by the Croda del Becco (2810 m). A further highlight of nature is the Prato Piazza, a high plateau of fascinating beauty with stunning views.
