The Tre Cime di Lavaredo is the separation between the cities Auronzo and Dobbiaco. There is a great legend how this place became the border between the two places. The story is as follows: a woman from Auronzo and a woman from Dobbiaco would set off at the crowing of the cock. The place where they would meet would become the border between the two areas. But the woman of Auronzo cheated and left before dawn so the boundary became much more north.

Tre Cime di Lavaredo is Italian for “the three peaks of Lavaredo”. These are three distinctive battlement-like peaks, in the Sexten Dolomites. They are probably one of the best-known mountain groups in the Alps. Until 1919 the peaks formed part of the border between Italy and Austria. Now they lie on the border between the Italian provinces of South Tyrol and Belluno and still are a part of the linguistic boundary between German-speaking and Italian-speaking majorities. The Cima Grande has an elevation of 2,999 metres (9,839 ft). It stands between the Cima Piccola, at 2,857 metres (9,373 ft), and the Cima Ovest, at 2,973 metres (9,754 ft).
