This is undoubtedly the icon that increases the spectacle of the race. Everything revolves around it. The path will take you to admire it up close at 360 °, and it will be exciting to perceive its size, its majesty, its magic. Like a huge rock stronghold it emerges lonely from the green of the meadows, and focuses the gaze from any angle. Within a few kilometers, all the variety of Dolomite terrains are enclosed, from woods, to mountain meadows, to scree and rock passages. Those who do not only aspire to performance, but decide to take an extra look, will be fascinated by the spectacular views that sweep 360 ° over the Dolomite peaks and valleys. Due to its particular shape reminiscent of a gigantic seat (seen from the south), it is defined by the locals as the “Caregon del Padreterno”, the throne of God. Legend has it that God, having completed the creation of the Dolomites, sat down exhausted right on the Pelmo to admire his work.
