This refuge is located on the La Sotín canal, a perched place from where you can contemplate the Peña with full satisfaction, being a privileged balcony over the Valdeón valley.

We are 2.064 meters high and it serves as a base to climb the Torres del Llambrión, Peñalba, La Palanca, etc. Its location was the idea of ​​Diego Mella. In August 1930 he was passing through here towards Llambrión for the first time and several circumstances led him to think about the possibility of building a shelter: the presence of water in a nearby source that never dries up, protection from the west wind, the existence of meadows in the surroundings, to be an avalanche-free zone… In 1935 it was decided to start the construction of the refuge.
