The Dolomiti di Brenta are the ninth and last of the systems forming the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Located in the province of Trento, this is the westernmost section of the site. The system stands out for its majestic forms
, more austere and less plastic
than the rest of the Dolomites. Here the stratigraphic succession and stages of the structural and tectonic evolution of the Dolomites are well represented.
The Dolomiti di Brenta can be divided into 4 separate sections
: the southern section with Cima Tosa, the highest peak of the group; the central section, made of Main Dolomite, with the peaks Brenta and Grosté; the northern section with the Pietra Grande and Sasso Rosso; and the section of Campa with Monte Corona. Among all the peaks of the group the most famous, especially among climbers, is without a doubt Campanil Basso
