During the sunrise on clear days, when the first rays of sun hit the mountaintops, you can witness a spectacular phenomenon called the “enrosadira”. This is a very unique light effect, also sometimes visible during the sunset, that makes the mountains glow rosy; one sensational occurrence that is absolutely priceless.
Countless emotions, various activities and magical colors of summer
Throughout the summer, Enrosadira plays a big role especially in the late afternoon and evening, when golden colors of the mountain peaks appear on the horizon. One of the places from where you get to see this light show is when you take a romantic stroll towards the Lake Biotope in Corvara. From there, you can see the "Holy Cross" mountain range appear in the distance with its sun-kissed rosy peaks. It is an absolute must to take the time and soak up this spectacle before the brisk sunset makes the beautiful bright picture disappear.
