Which refuges have signed up to the “Dolomites UNESCO Refuges” project?
To date, 31 refuges located within the territory recognised as a World Heritage Site in 2009 have signed up.
Summer 2016 marked the beginning of the ‘Dolomites UNESCO Refuges’ project for all refuge owners and mountain climbing associations, aimed at heightening awareness among climbers, hikers and lovers of the mountains that they are in the ‘core’ zone of the UNESCO Dolomites, helping them to appreciate the unique geological and landscape characteristics which have made the 9 systems in the Dolomites a Property that is recognised by the whole of mankind.
The new TABACCO map
The new TABACCO map has been dedicated entirely to the UNESCO Dolomites. It is a 1:150,000 tourist map which covers the whole territory of the nine Dolomites systems named World Heritage Site in 2009. On the back of the map there is information in three languages (Italian, German and English) about the history, geology, parks and the inscription process which led to the Dolomites becoming a UNESCO-protected heritage site.
