Situated in a spectacular location on a natural terrace facing Conca di By it is a cosy refuge in brick and stone.
Due to its location in a severe environment and the time it takes to climb up to it, it is not recommended for families. It is an alpin refuge because it is placed at 2979 meters of altitude. The refuge is managed by Chiavari C.A.I. volounteers who alternate weekly. The reception is very comfortable and the dish which never lack is “pasta al pesto” from Liguria.
