The newly reformed refuge on the island of Cabrera opens for the season today, in order to accommodate Easter Week, and will remain open until the end of October.
Restoration of the refuge was completed last year, just in time for the summer season and there was a waiting list of people who wanted to stay on the island over night.
The renovated building is part of the old military barracks and sleeps 24 people in 12 bedrooms which each have private bathrooms.
The refuge has been fitted with a communal kitchen and also boasts a lounge for guests and, for Easter, there are apparently still a number of vacancies.
However, normally, bookings can only be made on line and three months in advance.
