    The approach from Catalonia is much more pleasant due to the incline, but longer and leads through a pretty, lonely landscape. The journey on the French side is short, but very tough. There is little car traffic on the entire route.

    At the pass on the Catalan side there is a small but very solid, publicly accessible refuge with a table, oven and extra bedroom. There is also a spring there, but it only trickles very sparingly.

    On the pass itself, several information and memorial plaques remind of the many people who had to flee to France via this pass before the repression by the Franco regime. At the Refugio there is a plaque commemorating two libertarian activists who were arrested here in 1977 and tortured to death in prison six months later.
