The Laguna Grande Refuge is located in the Natural Park of the Sierra de Gredos. Due to its strategic location in the heart of Gredos, it receives a large number of visitors throughout the year. From our position in the refuge, as a company and as individuals, we always try to carry out a task of control and awareness, in terms of the impact of our stay and our journey through Gredos.

65 places in bunk beds with mattresses and blankets, distributed in 3 collective dormitories.


When the shelter is CLOSED AND IN THE ABSENCE OF THE GUARDS, an area in the lower part of it remains open, with a capacity for 10 people.
