The Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park lies in the midst of the Braies-Prags Dolomites and the Fanes chain. Typical karst forms such as fissures and limestone pavements, cracks, and sinkhole ponds characterize this area, the core of which is formed by the Malga Fane-Fane Alm and the broad Prato Piazza-Plätzwiese. And in the middle of the proudly soaring mountains is embedded the true gem of mountain lakes: the emerald shimmering Lago di Bràies-Pragser Wildsee.
From May to October and from late December to March: Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 A.M. to 12:30 P.M. and 2:30 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. In July and August: also open Sundays. Admission is free of charge.

Within its 9400 hectares, composed primarily of rocky high plateaus at altitudes of just under 2500 meters above sea level, the Puez Odle Nature Park is of interest primarily for its great range of geological formations, enriched by landscapes of great scenic beauty like natural amphitheaters, caves, arches alternating with bold rock pinnacles and bizarre forms of erosion to be admired, in particular, on Col dala Sonë.
Another of this protected area’s most interesting aspects is also undoubtedly its great variety of geological structures, of exceptional interest park-wide and frequently unique, not only in the Dolomites context. The Gardenaccia or Col de Puez high plateau moonscapes, with the only Jurassic and Cretaceous era deposits to be found in the Dolomites, are just a couple of examples.
