    First Night Accommodation

    We arrive in Oporto on 20th June and, after collecting our Credencial from the cathederal, will travel to Valenca in readiness to start our Camino the next day. Would we be eligible to stay in the Albergue in Tui on the night before we start or do we need to book local accommodation?

The guy in the store advised against a sleeping bag liner indicating it would probably not be warm enough (I...
