The refuges in the Alps are large cabins that were originally in very remote locations, as many still are. They are places of shelter in the high mountains. Most were used as or created as military outposts in World War One.  Today, you still have to hike or mountain bike to get to most of them. You can still take refuge and you can pay hostel prices to sleep inside. Wonderful resources for exploring the high Aps.

The Front Line Refuges of Trento Province, Trentino

The centenary of the Great War has just passed but the memories of our grandparents’ fight will never be forgotten. With this article we propose some refuges in the lower Trento Province area that were the undisputed protagonists of the period in which the front lines between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire divided minds, families and traditions for ominous national objectives. Organizing or even just envisaging excursions to remember and visit the places of the fighting is a strong signal of hope that conflicts of this nature will never happen again. Not itineraries from refuge to refuge, but day long excursions on paths that flank forts, penetrate trenches, and enter tunnels and fortified gun emplacements, right up to the battlefields. So, arm yourself with comfortable hiking boots, a mountain backpack, a rain jacket and a good paper map in order to dive into these wonders that are witnesses of war and forever hold the memories. It’s time to leave!
