Rifugio Don Barbera

The current structure, in stone and wood, is the result of a complete renovation recently carried out. It is a comfortable refuge, suitable for hikers as well as for groups and schools.
The refuge is located a few meters from the Colle dei Signori, immersed in the austere and uncontaminated nature of the upper Pesio and Tanaro valley natural park.

Located in the heart of the Marguareis Natural Park at Colle dei Signori, the Don Barbera Refuge is located at the foot of the queen of the Ligurian Alps: Punta Marguareis, nestled between Piedmont, Liguria and France.

A world of mountains where you can already breathe the smell of the sea...
Everything is the result of environments, cultures and histories which, by impacting each other, give life to a particular and colorful environment of plants, flowers and endemic species distributed over a single terrain that hides a vast system of caves.

Colle dei Signori has always been an important stop on ancient routes, such as the Via del Sale, the Via Marenca and the Sentiero degli Alpini. Given its particular position, the refuge can be easily reached from the Pesio, Ellero, Tanaro, Roja and Vermenagna valleys, thus representing an important strategic point in a large number of treks, crossings and excursions.
For example, the Refuge is included in the Giro del Marguareis, a splendid trek that crosses unforgettable sceneries and environments.
