This refuge of the Dry Stone Route GR 221 occupies the building of what used to be the Muleta army telegraph station which was in use between 1912 and 1956. Its location, near the Cap Gros lighthouse, which controlled the entrance to the Port de Sóller, bestows it with spectacular views of the Mediterranean, the cliffs along the north coast and the mountains that border the valley: of these Puig Major, Puig de l’Ofre and Es Teix, all of which are over 1,000 meters high, stand out.
From here on, an extensive network of bridlepaths is available to the hiker; these paths make the valley of Sóller and the municipality of Deià one of the main centres of hiking on the island of Majorca. At the same time, places such as Sóller, Biniaraix, Fornalutx and Deià have conserved a valuable architectural heritage, which invites the visitor to stroll attentively round their lanes.
