    Camino Catalan

    Hi have done a search & cant find any information for a hostel to stay in at Cortes. The phone number I had (which I got from Montserrat) is disconnected & the address can not be found on any map. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I'm planning on being there in 3 days. Thanks Michelle
