Refuge Velo della Madonna, owned by SAT, is built on a rocky terrace at the foot of the Cima della Madonna at an altitude of 2358 meters, in the Pale di San Martino group. The “Velo della Madonna” is the north-west corner of the homonymous peak, where the exciting climbing of the “Edge of the Veil”, certainly one of the most fascinating and famous “classic” routes of all the Dolomites, takes place. From the Refuge there are many Via Ferrate and equipped paths: Ferrata Velo – Porton, Ferrata della Vecia, Sentiero Nico Gusella, Cacciatore, Dino Buzzati…Camillo De Paoli.
