    All albergues in Negreira closed

    Hey all, For anyone looking to extend their Camino beyond Santiago to Fisterra/Muxia, please note that all the albergues in Negreira are closed! Luckily in Alto da Pena there are albergues open but it is another 9km further along.

    1st time Camino. Starting Frances 26th Sep

    Thank you! Safely completed the San Salvador in reverse and now onto the Frances from León. It was surprisingly well marked going against the flow and if I was ever in doubt then the map on the Wise Pilgrim app was handy! Would heartily recommend the route, though it’s not for the faint-hearted

    Via de la Plata in reverse (Gijón to Cádiz)

    Thank you all for your help! All of the resources you're positing seem extremely helpful and are quelling any small doubts about striking out solo. @Raggy, that's a really good point. Having done a bit of research on Wikiloc I feel a bit more confident about piecing together the route between...

    Via de la Plata in reverse (Gijón to Cádiz)

    Thank you both for your advice and thoughts. Wikiloc is a useful resource and I appreciate the links to Gerard's work! I've spent time fleshing out the route in more detail as follows: Ribadesella - Villaviciosa (Camino del Norte) Villaviciosa - Oviedo (Camino Primitivo) Oviedo - León (Camino...

    Via de la Plata in reverse (Gijón to Cádiz)

    Hi all, Please excuse any conventions that I may have missed - it's my first time posting on here. I am planning to set off in October (after a month spent in Asturias) from Gijón - Cádiz; tying together a few Camino routes in reverse but primarily the Via de la Plata to Seville before taking...
