Dolomites, Italy, Val Di Funes

Continuing to explore the Dolomites in Italy, my road trip brought me to the Val Di Funes, where a small baroque church stands.
Visible on many pictures of the Dolomites, the Ranui’s Church of St Johann was built in 1744 (Chiesetta di San Giovanni in Ranui).
It was really impressive to discover it with my own eyes, after seeing it through photographs on the web.
Nearby is the church of Santa Maddalena (or St Magdalena) which saw its first building in 1394. It is one of the symbols of the Val di Funes.

With the Odle/Geisler mountains in the background, the Val Di Funes (or Villnöss Valley) is an amazing place for photographers.
Right in the heart of the Puez-Odle Nature Park, the main peaks of this mountain range are Sass Rigais and Fruchetta (both 3025m).

If you travel to Italy, you can defenitely go to the Val di Funes, to enjoy the Dolomites and the majestic mountain scenery.
I was able to be there in the early morning, and at sunset, when the Odle Group turns red. I hope you enjoy my photographs.
