All places to sleep in one file - Coastal and Central route, Camino Portuguese Oct 23rd 2017

No permission to download
Hi friends!

this resource contains as many places to sleep along the route as possible - albergues, hotels, pensions and much more in one document, handy to bring with you on the Camino.

It covers the following Routes of Camino Portuguese
Lisbon-Porto:Follows the interior route from Lisbon via Santarem, Tomar, Coimbra and Mealhada to Porto
Coastal:Follows the coastal (monacal) route from Porto via Vila do Conde, Viana do Castelo, Baiona, Vigo to Redondela and then towards Santiago
Central:Follows the central route from Porto via Barcelos, Ponte de Lima, Tui, O Porriño to Redondela and then towards Santiago
Spiritual:Follows the Variant Espiritual route from just north of Pontevedra via Combaro, A Armenteira, Villanova de Arousa and by boat to Padron and then towards Santiago

I have made it in a GoogleDoc as it is good for teamworking, you are all welcome to comment in it (or send me a mail from it) and I'll happily add or change it based on your input.

Please notice there are several sheets in the GoogleDoc
* "How to filter routes" - an explanation of how you can filter the sheet or excel file for yourself
* "Camino Portuguese" - covers places to sleep on the routes. A huge list!
* "Download PDF and excel versions" - all the downloads you can dream of!
* "Version and info" - gives an overview of the route as well as a little overview of my primary sources and current status of updating!)

Well, without further ado, here it is (as shortform):

Besides, I make a .pdf and a .xlsx-document for you to download whenever I've made a few updates, so these documents are as up-to-date as possible (but the GoogleDoc is the master-document). The Excel-document included in this post is the one linked below on the Camino Portugues - Coastal and Central routes.xlsx?dl=0

Let me know what you think of it - and if you have comments, add-ons, changes or suggestions :)

Yes, this accommodation info is helpful. Gives me an idea of how many choices I have at different locations. In the same vein, is there a place where I can get info about grocery stores or where people get water?
Sadly, not anywere I am aware of. I didn't feel it was an issue during the camino - but it wasn't really how when we walked it in March/April
Thank you. This is so useful for planning my trip.
And thanks to you :-) just happy that it's being used and can help other pilggrims!
