The guarded Refugio Poqueira sits at 2500m below the SW face of Mulhacen, the highest mountain in mainland Spain. Useful for winter ski touring and mountaineering tours on the southern Sierra Nevada
It is a guarded hut with room for 84 persons and supplies visitors with beds, blankets, meals and drinks. Specially recommended is the "vino caliente" which is available by the jug! It is open all year round.
The hut guardians, Rafael and Ansi, are most helpful and friendly and we recommend you to spend some time there. The hut is very useful for ascents of Mulhacen and other peaks on the south side of the Sierras. Also useful during a traverse of the 3000m peaks (Los Tres Miles) as a place to recuperate and resupply.
It is advisable to book in advance if you wish to stay at the hut. The contact details are as follows:
