In the north of the Valley of Benasque a refuge has existed in this place for many centuries to offer travellers who cross the pass to France a safe place to stay during their journey. Inside the hotel, the stone walls, the locally crafted wood furnishings, and the hand-painted decoration, give a typical and warmful mountain atmosphere that make Benasques Valley different from the other valleys of the Pyrenees.
