In June 2009, the UNESCO world cultural heritage committee decided to include the nine Dolomits sub-regions on the world heritage list, in the explanation of Sevilla, this means: "The nine mountain ranges of the Dolomites cultural heritage are unique mountain landscapes of unusual beauty. Its breath-taking peaks which tower vertically upward and shine palely in the moonlight appear with such a diversity of form that they are unique in the world. They are also of major importance for the natural sciences".
La Valle/La Val is nestled between two of the nine total non-connected UNESCO areas: the nature park Puez Odle and the northern Dolomites with the nature park Fanes-Sennes-Braies. In summer, 2015, the autonomous province Bozen-South Tyrol opened a panoramic platform on the 2,307 metre high "Monte Specie" iin the Fanes-Sennes-Braies nature park.
