Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Sexten Dolomites in South Tyrol, Italy are the most famous peaks of Sexten Dolomites. It consists of three battlement-like Dolomite limestone peaks of Cima Ovest (west”), Cima Grande, (“big) and Cima Piccola (“small”).

Before WWI and 1919 it used to be on the border of Austria and Italy and today it marks the linguistic border of German and Italian speaking parts of South Tyrol region of Italy. It is a popular place for climbers and it is also a nature reserve and part of the Dolomites as UNESCO nature World Heritage Site

In the picture you can see the Rifugio Lavaredo (2.344 m altitude) under the slope on the left, Cadini di Misurina rugged range in the background, the mighty Cima Piccola (2.857 m alt.) and the saddle Forcella di Lavaredo with the ant-like tourists.
