MARMOLADA - THE DOLOMITES' QUEEN
On the Belluno Province side of Marmolada, a modern cable car allows people to go up, in just 12 minutes, from Malga Ciapela (1450 m) to Punta Rocca station (3265 m), located exactly in front of Punta Penia, Dolomites highest peak (3343 m), passing through the intermediary stations of Coston d’Antermoja (2350 m) and Serauta (2950 m).
The rooftop terrace of Punta Rocca station (3265 m) is an awe-inspiring observation point that is easily accessible to everyone, including people with special needs. Once you arrive into the mountain station with its wide windows, you can get up to the terrace with the lift.
From up there you can enjoy gorgeous 360° views of the Dolomites, Natural World Heritage since 2009.
From Punta Rocca, it begins “La Bellunese”, one of the most spectacular ski slopes of the Dolomites, which passes on Marmolada glacier and reach the Fedaia Pass, descending then to Malga Ciapela. A 12 Km-long descent, but also an itinerary rich in charm and dreamy landscapes. The slope is always well covered by snow, thanks to its altitude, and its large and characterised by an intermediary gradient.
Grotto of the Madonna in Punta Rocca’s station
In Punta Rocca station there is the Grotto of the Madonna: it’s a cave similar to those dug by soldiers in 1916-1917 as shelter from the elements and the enemy. The grotto is a symbol of peace and here you can admire the statue of the Madonna that was consecrated by Pope John Paul II during his visit to Marmolada on August 26th, 1979. Holy Mass can be celebrated upon previous reservation.

MUSEO MARMOLADA GRANDE GUERRA
The Museum of the Great War – Museo Marmolada Grande Guerra 3000 m, is entirely dedicated to the life of soldiers. Through a didactic and sensory itinerary, visitors can understand how terrible were the life conditions of soldiers in that period. The museum is located at 3000 m, on the second floor of Serauta’s cable car station. It is accessible also to people with special needs. From the wide windows, you can observe the tunnels dug by soldiers during WWI. The museum is in fact located right on the same places where Italian and Austro-Hungarian soldiers fought each other.
The legendary “City of Ice”, one of the topics of our museum, was a labyrinth inside the glacier, composed by 12 km of tunnels, inhabited by 200 Austro-Hungarian soldiers, who found here a shelter from Italian attacks, avalanches, blizzards and cold.
