    RIELLO FOOD SHOP

    The food shop in RIELLO is AUTOSERVICIO LARPI. It’s set back on the left-hand side as soon as you reach Riello. ( It’s not a garage for servicing cars as I thought😋 - I have not done any Spanish for three years). It means self-service. Mick.

    Few albergues on the Olvidado

    For many years now I always bring a ultra light tent about a kilogram. Most times I never use it or once. When I don’t use it I think has it been worthwhile to carry that extra kilogram for nothing and then the time when I do need it it’s fantastic.Have you already bought a sleeping bag? I never...

    Problem on the Camino Olvidado

    I know for a fact I was on the right track.The scenario in my opinion is have the foresters cut the trees down and ignored it was a Pilgrimage Camino and not Re-routed it. Or the sign that is parallel to the road with a yellow arrow and a white marker and a name the new route to follow which...

    I didn't put it in my guide because I could never get a reply from the Albergue. You can still stay in Arroyo at the Hotel La Lobera but it is expensive. I had coffee and biscuits and the company of Pilar for one hour. Mick.

    Look at my Camino Olvidado Guide from Bilbao - May 2018. Everything in the guide has been verified for Perigrinos. The Albergue is not situated on the camino into Soncillo or on the camino out of Soncillo but is about 1 km out of Soncillo. 12 Euros to sleep there. Mick.

    The old school is not an Albergue. It it is used as a community centre for the small village. I stayed there on a very comfortable sofa and was glad of it. Pilgrims will be allowed to stay there until the Albergue opens.The telephone number is still valid.Cheers Mick.
