Presentation

Cortina d'Ampezzo (BL), also called the "Queen of the Dolomites," is located at an altitude of 1,210 m in the center of the Ampezzo basin in the upper Boite valley, positioned between Cadore (to the south) and Val Pusteria (to the north), Val d'Ansiei (to the east) and Alto Agordino (to the west). Cortina is a well-known tourist resort in both winter and summer thanks to the practice of winter sports, hiking and mountaineering, and the beauty of the natural landscapes preserved in the Ampezzo Dolomites Nature Park, which includes the Tofane group and Monte Cristallo up to the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Park. The town of Cortina develops around Corso Italia, bustling with businesses, restaurants, hotels and stores. Cortina's main church, dedicated to Saints Philip and James, dates back to 1208 and was rebuilt in the 18th century. Inside is a wooden altar by Bellunese artist Andrea Brustolon and several paintings by Giuseppe Zanchi and Luigi and Giuseppe Ghedina.
