Rifugio Achille Papa welcomes you

The refuge is officially open

We look forward to seeing you there !

The refuge “Gen. Achille Papa” is located at the Porte del Pasubio, at 1928 m on the massif of the same name, at the head of the Val Canale, in a panoramic position on the southern side of the mountain and is named after General Achille Papa.

It was built in 1921 on what remained of a masonry shelter of the barracks of the First World War, located away from the Austrian artillery.

Over the years it has undergone various renovations and restoration works and today the Rifugio Papa, property of the CAI of Schio, is an open refuge for the whole summer period, from June to September, and on the weekends of October and November.


The restaurant service of the refuge is located on the first floor of the structure, is active for lunch from 11:30 to 15:30 and is accessed from the external staircase that leads to the terrace on the left of the building, west side.

It is possible to have lunch both in the table places located on the outdoor terrace and those inside the structure. Outdoor tables can accommodate up to 10 people, so they can be shared.  The possibility of moving between the two zones will depend on the availability of the moment.


Pets are allowed only on the outdoor terrace.
