For generations there have been many legends shared among the inhabitants of the Dolomites always routed in the beautiful land and mountainous terrain surrounding them.
It is no wonder: the Dolomites are magical mountains and it is easy to spy an enchanted castle between the peaks, to confound the sun’s reflection in a mountain lake with a treasure, and to hear the singing of a lady in the wind.
One of the most beautiful and well-known legends tells how the Dolomites have come to their special, particularly pale colour:
Once upon a time, in the south of the Alps, there was a rich and fortunate kingdom. Its inhabitants lived a happy and carefree life – except for one, the king’s son, who was tormented by an ardent desire: he wanted to go to the moon.
