The throne of God | Legend has it that God, having created the world, to enjoy His beauty, came down to earth to admire him more closely.Realizing that the surface was too flat decided to create the mountains and began to shape the Alps were born in this way, the Maritime Alps, the Ligurian, the Cozie, the Graeae, the Pennines, the Lepontines, the Rhaetian ...When it was time to create the Dolomites he used a rock different from the other, such that at sunset could take the reflexes of gold.His work lasted a whole day, until sunset. After that, the good Lord wanted to rest but could see nothing but that sharp peaks. Thought then to create a comfortable throne of rock on which to sit and admire his work. From there you could see the Marmolada, the Tofane, Cristallo, the Three Cime di Lavaredo, Antelao ...The classical shape of a chair of Mount Pelmo is clearly recognizable even today. From legend to reality is a short step, but the throne of God remains as it dominates all the surrounding peaks.
