Redagno GEOMuseum

Actually there are two GEOMuseums: One of them, the Aldino GEOMuseum, is the visitor centre of the Rio delle Foglie Gorge

Both the visitor centre at the entrance of the circular path of the Rio delle Foglie Gorge in Aldino and the GEOMuseum in Redagno, 20 km away, are dedicated to the well-known GEOPARC Rio delle Foglie or Bletterbachschlucht, a proverbial history book of the last millions of years of the earth. It is housed in the Peter Rosegger House and displays the most important finds and types of rock from the Rio delle Foglie Gorge. Even traces of dinosaurs were already found there.

A visit to the Redagno GEOMuseum - "GEOMuseum Radein" in German, "Museo GEOlogico di Redagno" in Italian - is the ideal start for the hike through the Rio delle Foglie Gorge. In 2006 the museum was rebuilt and revised: Display boards with easy-to-understand explanations give an insight into millions of years of the earth's history and the structure of the Dolomites. Palaeontologists have so far discovered a total of around 20 different traces of animal species in the GEOPARC Rio delle Foglie. And again and again there are new discoveries and insights!

The exhibition includes fossilised imprints of the Phalangichnus Perwangeri, a short reptile, Claraia shells, and plant fossils from the Val Gardena sandstone, which look as if they had just been placed there. And how to reach the GEOMuseum in Redagno? It is located in the Peter Rosegger House near the church in Redagno di Sopra. Parking facilities are available, people with disabilities may park in the immediate vicinity of the entrance on request.
