Mythical Mountains

 In History of Humanity, the mountains have always been a symbol between the here and hereafter, between the tangible and inexplicable. That’s why we are getting closer to the summits with a very particular feeling, almost a religious one!

Numerous legends about Gods, Heroes, Genesis and End of the World has climbed these mountains and still wander there nowadays. These stories are found in other mountainous regions of the Planet.

The Alps have been and still are inhabited by men from different languages and cultures. This diversity is reflected in myths of the mountain. These one must remind us that the attacks of the men on the mountainous world can lead to a breaking a the natural balance.

It is thanks to this idea that the Alpine Network of Protected Areas has decided to create an exhibition in the framework of The International Year of the Mountain, which started in 2002 with UNESCO and FAO. 34 alpine protected areas are represented in 16 modules to create this travelling exhibition. It is recounting the Myth of the Alps talking about the Mythical Mountain of each protected area represented in this exhibition.
