In 1980 Prato Piazza was successfully accepted to fall under the protection of the natural park Fanes-Senes-Braies.
Fanes-Senes-Braies has an area of 25,680 hectares and reaches from Val di Braies to Val Badia. The park aims to raise awareness of both the local population and tourists, on the importance of protecting our beautiful and natural environment.
We, at the Alpine Hut Prato Piazza also contribute to the goals of the park by strictly adhering to a number of specific rules and guidelines.
In 2010, finally, the nature park Fanes-Senes-Braies, including Braies lake and Prato Piazzo where officially made a UNESCO world heritage site.
We are very proud of this achiviment and this shows the uniqueness of this beautiful landscape in our part of the Dolomites.
