    At 2,154 metres above sea level, the Comici Refuge in Selva di Val Gardena was built in honour of the Alpine legend. Emilio Comici, born in Trieste in 1901 was always fascinated by the enchanting Dolomites. In 1932 he decided to stop living in the city and moved to the Dolomites where he became an Alpine tour-guide. Legendary climbing trails and adventurous summit conquests gave him fame and recognition until his tragic death in 1940 when he fell off a mountain side. He was seen as one of the most elegant climbers of his era. The Comici Refuge shows all the respect that he earned. Fascination, elegance, style and unquestionable class reflect the climber’s personality. The light blue shutters shine under the rocky mountain sides, delicious and heavenly culinary creations enchant the guests. Full of comfort, style, friendliness and Alpine well-being make the haven a unique place to stop and eat. We’re sure that Emilio Comici would have felt at home here.
