Casa Banderas

Some text from their website at http://www.casabanderas.com/ :

The name, which means "House of Flags", was given by locals as a result of the owners habit of hanging three flags at the entrance to the house. These are the Spanish national flag, the Galician flag and the very colourful South African flag. Recently the Danish flag has been added.

As the pilgrims, having left Sarria 20 km behind, approach Portomarin with only 3km ahead, and the dam on the Rio Miño still to cross, they pass through the tiny village of Vilachá in the parish of As Cortes. It is in this village that Casa Banderas is located, surrounded by wonderful ancient archtecture and many lovely neighbours.
