    Ferrol - where to get the first Sello/ stamp

    You can also get a sello from the Concatedral de San Julian de Ferrol, Rúa Igrexa, 104, 15402 Ferrol, La Coruña, . It has a mass starting at 1930 each day. I got mine there earlier in the day from a room/vestry behind the alter, but also had got one next morning from the Hostal. the Oficina...

    Help with Medellin to Merida

    Hi Laurie, The river crossing may be a bit dicey. There is an alternative route, from Yelbes to the N- 430 on the east bank of the river. I have attached a screen print from Google Maps. You could try the same trick asking for walking from Medelin to Merida. The track looks almost the same...

    Outdoor gear shops on the Vdlp

    Also "Forum Sports" in Salamanca. I had to buy boots there in 2011, after my Merrills failed in about 600km

    New stop/place to stay between Betanzos and Bruma

    The Mesón-Museo Xente no Camiño is already marked on Google Maps., just south of the 11km waymark on the DP-0105. According to my maps the Camino Ingles diverts from the DP-0105 to the east of Presedo but comes within 100 metres very near to the Meson-Museo. Google gives the web address as...

    Camino Mozárabe September-October 2011

    Re: Camino Mozárabe-May Hi Janice, We found Granada to Cordoba very tough. However, by the time we reached Cordoba we had toughened up too. When you are planning your itinerary bear in mind that you will want to spend several days in each of these cities and that they are quite touristy...

    Waymark potpourri.

    Re: Costruction between Alcantara and Cañaveral Hi All, I think the construction in between Casar de Cáceres and Alcantara and Alcantara and Cañaveral is for a high speed train line. Have a look at Google maps. It starts near Caceres and ends at a tunnel into the hill before Grimaldo. Its...

    New albergue in Bandeira ready by the end of September

    Thanks Laurie, I have been writing up my notes from November 2011 and was wondering if anything had happened about the albergue. The Hostal Conde Rey was closed as we came into town so we were glad to get a room in the Victorino which was a friendly place, although the rooms were a little cold...

    Alternative Route from Puebla de Sanbria to Requejo de Sanab

    Hi All, As the walking season has started I thought I would document an alternative route from Puebla de Sanabria to Requejo de Sanabria. It goes via Lobeznos and Pedralba de la Praderia. The route is waymarked and avoids walking along the N-525 for much of the way. A google map of the route...

    Detour after Grimaldo

    Hi Everyone, We were on this stage on 10 October last year. Because of the discussion referenced by above by peregrina2000 I was a bit unsure about going over the hills after the Embalse de Arroya Boqueron When we got to the green gate by the canal, it was open and two men were herding sheep in...

    Re: Camino Mozárabe maps Hola Perigrinator and All, The maps are marked up Spanish 1:50,000 survey maps. They are strip maps cut from the originals and combined into a PDF file. I have updated the Camino Mózarabe maps but have yet to work on the Via de la Plata section of our camino. I am...
