Enrosadira, the Alpenglow in the Dolomites

The enchanting sunsets in the Dolomites are renowned throughout the world.

When these rugged mountains are suffused in pink shades gradually turning to a fiery red, they take even the most experienced mountaineers by surprise.

Sleeping high up in one of our mountain shelters is the best way to admire the pink sunrises and the fiery sunsets.

The Delicious team arranges early morning breakfasts as well as aperitifs and dinners so that you can enjoy both spectacles to the full.

At Col Gallina you can admire the sky close up from a high altitude,  in a comfortable room with glass walls. The "Starlight Room Dolomites 360°" and "Starlight Room Dolomites Gourmet" are designed so that you can watch the sky all night long as it changes with time: in the evening the landscape shines in a glowing red light, the night is lit up by the light of the myriad stars and the moon, and then the dawn bathes the mountains at the Falzarego Pass, the Lagazuoi, the Tofana di Rozes and the Sasso di Stria in a soft pink light.

An experience not to be missed!

The legend of the “Enrosadira”

According to an ancient legend, once the Dolomites were littered with red roses and hid rich treasures. Among these roses lived a race of dwarfs ruled by King Laurin.

The kingdom was not protected either by walls or palisades, but only by a very thin silk thread.

One day the king was captured and imprisoned.

The blame was attributed to the roses for having attracted the enemies with their brilliant colour.

Thus, the king made a spell and turned the whole garden into a wilderness of rocks causing the red of the roses to disappear from those mountains both during the day and at night.

Laurin, however, forgot the twilight, the moment in which, even today, it is possible to admire the red reflections of the enchanted garden...
