Refuge has a year-round manager
Running along the bottom of Bujaruelo gorge, a valley surrounded by high peaks, is a a dirt track that leads to both a campsite and the Refugio de Bujaruelo (Bujaruelo Mountain Hut). The mountain hut, an old inn and in before that a hospital for pilgrims, was originally built in the 12th century by the Knights Hospitallers Order of Saint John. The Bujarelo valley is a stretch formed by the upper part of the river Ara, which marks the boundary line of protection of the Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park. The mountain hut is located in this valley, together with a Romanesque chapel and bridge. After it was first built, it was remodelled on several occasions to have the appearance and services that it offers today.
