The Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Italian for “the three peaks of Lavaredo”), also called the Drei Zinnen (German, literally “three merlons”), are three peaks, in the Sexten Dolomites of northeastern Italy. The three peaks, from east to west, are:
Cima Piccola/Kleine Zinne (“little peak”, 2,857 metres (9,373 ft))
Cima Grande/Große Zinne (“big peak”, 2,999 metres (9,839 ft))
Cima Ovest/Westliche Zinne (“western peak”, 2,973 metres (9,754 ft)).
Until 1919 the peaks formed part of the border between Italy and Austria. The possession of these summits became a priority mission for both Italian and Austro-Hungarian armies, transforming this place in a almost surreal battlefield.
