Shelter - Refugi Coma de Vaca

42 beds Paid 1995m

The current shelter Coma de Vaca, opened in September 1999, has its origins in a small stone house that was where the current building is. This house was built by the FECSA hydroelectric company in the 50s. XX in order to accommodate the workers who carried out a study on the possible feasibility of a reservoir on the Eugues plain. The project did not go ahead and FECSA gave to the FEEC its use. Today, Coma de Vaca is a modern and cozy refuge, located in a bucolic valley surrounded by peaks, where the Freser and Coma de Vaca rivers converge. At the crossroads of one of the GR 11 variants (GR 11.7), the excursion to the shelter for the Gorges del Freser or the Núria Engineers' Way is already an unforgettable experience. The refuge is also part of the Travesses dels 3 Refugis and the Magical Mountains route.
