Platzhalter

The Rosengarten (Catinaggio) is a massif in the Dolomites of northern Italy. It is located between the Tiers, Eggental and Fassa Valleys, in Trentino-Alto Adige/South Tyrol. One peculiarity of the Rosengarten is the pink shade which it takes in the sunset, due to the presence of dolomite mineral, celebrated as "glowing". Meaning "Rose garden" in German, the name refers to the legend of King Laurin and his Rose Garden, a traditional story explaining the outer appearance of the mountain range.
