The area where the rocks of the Dolomites were formed was situated more southerly of its current position - somewhere between the tropics and the equator! From deserts to tropical islands, volcanoes and the depths of the sea: traces of these ancient areas are found in the rock of the Dolomites and the Dos Capèl route has many, many traces to show. Do you think you’ll be able to find them? Follow the signs and with a little careful observation, you too can learn to read the rocks like a book. You will find beaches and sea beds, shells and starfish that lived before the dinosaurs, and “cooked”, folded and broken rocks. You will find flint, a much sought-after material in the prehistoric period, walk on the lava, ash and lapillus of the ancient Predazzo volcano, and you will get to know the enigma of the Green Stone and much more besides.
