A STEP TOWARDS MODERNITY.
The old hut was deteriorating as years went by and the access to it became dangerous. In 1976, the Centre Excursionista de Catalunya decided to commemorate their Centenary building a new hut that they called J. Ventosa i Calvell. That year the designing plans were done and on July 21st the contract to demolish the old hut –it took place between August and September- was signed.
Between 1977, 1978 and 1979 the building and adaptation of the track –just accessible with a mule- was done. It was a huge task to accomplish and a big number of volunteers collaborated. Finally, on November the 3rd 1979 the new refuge J. Ventosa i Calvell was inaugurated for use and enjoyment of the mountaineers.
