The stunning plateau of Malga Juribello and its pastures stretches for about 180 hectares in the Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino Natural Park. It is a magnificent example of traditional mountain pastureland which has come about thanks to the positive interaction between man and nature over the course of the centuries.

The importance of the flora, fauna and biodiversity here is linked in equal measure to the fertility of the soil and man’s intervention over the centuries to cultivate it.

As regards the structural values of the landscape, in this area (the plateau and Rolle Pass) there are many examples of the contrast between the dark deposits of volcanic origin and the impressive light limestone walls which give the Dolomites their typical colour all year round.

The stratigraphic sequence in this section covers a period of about 150 million years, from the early Palaeozoic to the late Carnian/Norian periods. Most of its rocks belong to the Permian-Triassic eras, with a large percentage from the Anisian-Ladinian period.
