Sciliar-Catinaccio visitor centre

The building of a former Venetian sawmill near Tires offers interesting facts about the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park.

Where the Ciamin valley begins, in the locality of Bagni di Lavina Bianca, you will find the visitor centre of the Sciliar-Catinaccio Nature Park. Once the house served as a rare Venetian water mill, called “Steger Säge”, but today it hosts the park’s valuable information centre. The centre tells you all about the geology of the Sciliar massif and the origins of the Dolomites in a lively and interesting way. It also features a media room, where a film about the world of rocks is displayed in regular intervals.

Additionally to the visitor centre in Tires there is an info point near to the Pond of Fiè. Here you might get lots of information about the flora of the pond, the local fauns and reeds, and about the fish living in the pond. Also in Siuso allo Sciliar a visitor centre is under construction (inauguration scheduled for 2018). Did you know that building mountain huts has also promoted the spread of certain animals as ermines or black redstarts, a small passerine bird? In search for food they’ve moved towards the mountain huts.
