Are you looking for somewhere you can try typical Emilian culinary delicacies, maybe while enjoying the beautiful panorama of our region and, what’s more, even visiting its sites with expert guides? Well, you’re in the right place.

We’d now like to tell you about a place where you can enjoy all the different aspects that make our Emilia unique.

First and foremost, the Rifugio Della Pietra is about cooking: typical Emilian cuisine of course, but it also caters to vegetarian needs and other food intolerances; whether you are looking for lunch or dinner in complete peace and quiet, or you want to grab a quick bite before getting back on the road, they know how to make you happy, offering the best local high-quality products at affordable prices.

Nature trails, interesting regional spots and hermitage sites: Alpine guides will help you explore the places of the Pietra, offering more than just climbing and hiking, but also innovative trails to discover new, little-known aspects of our region, such as its archaeology.

Last but not least, the Rifugio Della Pietra organises many sports and recreational activities for all tastes: whether you are sporty, a nature lover, children or families…you will certainly not be disappointed with the many themed trails that the Lodge has set up for you!

Did you enjoy your stay so much that you want to take a piece of Pietra home with you? At the Lodge you can! In fact, in the shop you will find local and traditional products, clothing, games and souvenirs, such as items from the Sanctuary, as well as guides and further reading on environmental tourism, hiking and mountaineering. All the products come from social cooperatives and small local producers to support fair trade and to respect the core principles that guide the Lodge’s work: sustainability, social values, culture, the environment and the region. These principles are also combined in its focus on youths and on people finding it difficult to get a job.

Live well and do good: simple yet important rules for EsserEmiliano.
