    They are closing for the season, November 1st through February 28th 2013 unless you are a large group.

    That's a nuisance. Anybody got any advice on alternatives in the next week? - ideally I'd like to stay in Calzadilla de Tera, which is not far off half way between Tabara and Mombuey. (The CSJ guide says "new refugio reported" [my italics])

    Hi, Alan,

    My Vdlp was in May 2010, so I don't have the latest information. But I do know that there is an albergue in Vilar de Farfon. An English speaking family has moved into an old home on the way out of the village on the left. They have four beds for pilgrims. You can see about their place here:
    http://www.pilgrimmission.org/pilgrim_refugio_new.html

    The only other new albergue I know about is in Faramontanos de Tabara, but that's a few kms before Tabara and not likely to be much help for you. But when I stopped in the bar for a fanta de limon the owner told me very proudly about their new four bed albergue.

    Buen camino, it's fun following you from afar. Laurie

    p.s. I checked out the two Spanish websites. Mundicamino reports that in Calzadilla de Tera "A local spot serves as the municipal albergue." It says the same thing about Olleros de Tera, the next town after Calzadilla.

    Eroski gives a bit more information: The albergue in Calzadilla is next to the doctor's office. Phone: 980 645 845 (Ayuntamiento). Francisco Ramos is in charge, who lives there on Calle Olleros, 9. The albergue is on the floor above the "Hogar del Jubilado" (retired folks center).
    No bar, no kitchen in the albergue, but there is a small store and an excellent panaderia, according to commentaries. Others suggested that if you don't have food to eat, walk a km to Calzada de Tera, about 1 km away and eat at Bar Blanco.

    Thanks all. It looks as if there will be plenty of different choices depending on how far I feel like going tomorrow. I find knowing that there will be a bed (or mattress, or at least roof) somewhere is almost the most important thing - nagging uncertainty as you arrive at a small village as dusk is falling and it's an hour or more to the next place is a horrible feeling.

    Under normal circumstances I would probably detour before Sta Croya de Tera, but it seems silly to miss the lovely church and sculpture at Santa Marta just to save 2-3km.
