    Via de la Plata and Sanabres hour by hour

    Here are two videos from earlier this year (April/May) walking the Via de la Plata. One is an “hour by hour” video. Two years ago, inspired by a video with a selfie every mile on the Pacific Crest Trail, I decided to take a selfie approximately every hour while walking the Camino de Santiago...

    Recent fires in Galicia & Sanabres / Invierno routes

    Anyone know if the September / October fires in Galicia affected the Camino de Invierno and the Camino Sanabres? Have looked in Spanish press to find fire locations with no luck, just know that Ourense province was badly affected

    Help! Advice on finding the right direction Sanabria-Mozarabic or the French way?

    Hi all you experienced walkers of the VP. I am in a bit of a dilemma. I just returned to walk the VP after a break and am currently in Salamanca. It is very quiet on the road (I have seen two people so far). I am hoping for a trip that is not unbarebly hot and changing terrain to avoid the Sun...

    Albergue in A Laxe (Sanabres branch) closed

    I got information from forum member Matt (@pilgr ) who is in Lalin right now that pilgrims had to backtrack/reroute from A Laxe to Lalin due to closure of Xunta Albergue (https://www.gronze.com/galicia/pontevedra/laxe/albergue-peregrinos-laxe). Possible reason is: "I was told it was problems...

    Albergues in Galicia

    Just returned from walking the Via de la Plata /Sanabres and found that the role of the hospitaleros in municipal albergues in Galicia much changed. They only turn up briefly in the evening and often at a time when pilgrims may well be out eating (at say 7.30pm). Also, the albergue at Outeiro...

    Etapa A Gudiña -Laza on the Sanabres

    Reading blogs and websites is half of the fun in preparing my Camino. This is one particular etapa that frightens me a bit. I will stop in Campobecceros because no way I can do all those kilometres in one go. http://caminodesantiago.consumer.es/etapa-de-a-gudina-a-laza But... I read that it...

    Hi peregrino I'm thinking of walking the Sanabres Camino for the first time ever this year. The back of my napkin plan is to start in Verin, where relatives live, and conclude in Santiago in 7 or so days. I'd also consider starting before Verin to extend the Cameno experience. Ive searched the...
