It is located at the heart of the Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley, which was declared a World Heritage of Mankind by UNESCO in 2004.

All rooms are fully equipped, including bunk beds, mattresses, showers, bathrooms, etc. The refuge has also a terrace and a bar opened for the customers. 


What should I bring with me?

  • Good footwear for mountain walking and suitable clothing for the mountain.
  • Comfortable clothes for the night.
  • There’s no need to bring comfortable shoes because we will give you Crocs for our clients.

Do I have to bring bed sheets?

You don’t need to bring a sleeping bag since we have duvets in the refuge. Therefore, you must bring a sleeping bagsheet and a pillowcase.If not, we have some for sale in the refuge.
