    Attention, le rifugio Melezè est à 1H15 du village Chiesa à Pian Melezè. Ce qui rallonge d'autant l'étape du lendemain. Nous sommes restés au posto tapa del Pelvo qui est au centre du village. Nous avons vu comment ils confectionnent les "raviole" que nous avons dégusté le soir... Prévoir de l'argent liquide car ils ne prennent pas la carte bancaire.
