The hut used to be the barracks of the Customs Service. After radical refurbishment, since the summer of 2000, it has been organized to give hospitality to hikers. It has 5 bedrooms of different sizes, each one with a bathroom and shower; the hut can give hospitality to a maximum of 50 people. The large hall can contain up to 100 people; another 50 can find room on the terrace. Visitors can get a taste of the local cuisine with such specialties as typical cheeses and game. The fabulous view is on the side that looks towards Italy, the Cavargna Valley and the mountain chain that acts as a backdrop. Towards the Swiss side one also gets a deep view all the way beyond.
