Geology in South Tyrol

Geology in South TyrolIn the first part of the exhibition, the geological development of four typical landscapes in South Tyrol is presented. Evidence from more than 300 million years of the Earth's history give testimony to the varied development of our landscape. Volcanoes and tropical reefs were as much a part of this story as the enormous forces which folded the Earth's crust to form the Alps. In the last chapter, glaciers during the Ice Age gave South Tyrol the finishing touches.
