Panoramic balconies

We all like something easy on the eyes. And in every corner of Passo San Pellegrino there is plenty of spectacular scenery. Col Margherita is a symbolic mountain to Passo San Pellegrino. More specifically, the trail that goes to Cima Juribrutto was the theatre for bloody battles during the Great War. Today there is still a lot of evidence of this struggle, and tourists who come here can get more information at the interesting observation points equipped with benches and panels containing information on the surrounding peaks and their geological descriptions.

These charming “panoramic balconies” are made entirely from natural, local materials. They are perfect places to stop and enjoy a pleasant break with 360° views of the Dolomites, which are a UNESCO Natural World Heritage. The first one faces North onto the valley of San Pellegrino bringing together the Latemar Group and the Marmolada in a sort of virtual embrace; the other one faces South in the direction of the Pale di San Martino, feasting the eyes between the Marmolada and the Lagorai chain. Both are easily accessible from Passo San Pellegrino, even for families with small children, thanks to the comfortable and fast Col Margherita Funicular lift.
