In the valleys of Northern Italy, beneath the jagged spires of the Italian Dolomites, lies a quaint South Tyrolean town far from fairy tale or myth. Known as the Pearl of the Dolomites and the "place of crows" in Latin, Corvara captivates all who visit with its natural beauty, offering more than just vistas.
