The name of the refuge, Bai de Dones, literally “bath of women” comes from the name of the romantic lake, just few footsteps from the hut. According to ancient legends the lake was inhabited by Anguanes. The anguanes, in the local language “ ra anguanes” ,are beautiful girls present in celtic legends. Their beauty is disfigured by the goats’feet . It is told that you can meet them near lakes, sources or creeks. After a storm, when the creeks are full of water, children are told that water is so turbid because anganas are doing laundry. There are good anguanes helping farmers with their work in fields or women to improve their beauty, but there are also bad ones as witches. It is told that the Bai de Dones lake is inhabited by good Anguanes, so it is recommended to women with difficulties in becoming pregnant, to have a bath in that water reflecting dolomitic peaks and after nine months  they will have the joy to be happy mother. In the Bai de Dones Chalet you can find a well equipped bookshop on the numerous tracks to discover, as well as souvenir about the fantastic creatures belonging to local legends.
