Rifugio FontanaMura: a special story, up there, on the Alps!

Hi Skandorini, 

If you are visiting the Western Alps, I have a suggestion for you: go to Fontana Mura (link to English website: http://www.rifugiofontanamura.it/en/992-2/). 

The Fontana Mura refuge is located inside the Orsiera-Rocciavrè nature park, at the foot of the Colle della Roussa, a pass that connects Val Sangone with Val Chisone. The refuge takes its name from the source of the Sangone river, (originally Fontana Moura) that flows near the structure. It is located at 1726 m above sea level and is located in Alpe Sellery Superiore, and can only be reached on foot or by mountain bike from the start of the road-agro-silvo-pastorale near the town of Pian Neiretto, after Forno di Coazze.

If you read Italian, you may want to read the article I wrote for LatitudesLife this week: 

Rifugio Fontana Mura: grazie al caso

I promise it:  you won’t be disappointed – Claudia and Fabrizio, the owners of this mountain hut, will look after you! 

Enjoy the Alps!
