A Pobra do Brollón albergue, round three.

Past OR future Camino
Next up 2022?
A Pobra do Brollón could really use an albergue, as the town is perfectly situated on the long stage between Quiroga and Monforte. It's not for lack of effort; people are trying.

Now for the third time the process has hit a snag:

This delay really makes things hard for those who don’t want to or can’t walk the 35 km from Qiroga to Monforte.

The Pensión Pacita is apparently still closed near Barxa de Lor. Didn’t someone visit there recently and say it was hopeful they would re-open soon?

This makes the Casa Rural in Salcedo the only option I can think of.

See this post for good inforation on different ways to get there. It is very walkable, and the path along the river looks very pretty. The next day you would have about 18 km walking into Monforte de Lemos. Having a short walk into a nice town like Monforte is a treat.

Does anyone know of other options to break up the Quiroga to Monforte stage?

Buen camino, Laurie

Happy 2022 to all. I went by Casa Pacita this November just to say Hello. Pacita is very sick and recovering slowly. Please keep her, her husband & son in your prayers. As of yet no immediate plans to re-open.

Am I missing something? The Dutch Confraternity show a number of options in association with their map. One option is https://casasuarna.com/tarifas-hotel.asp for example.

Am I in the correct part of Spain?

Here is a screenshot of the list of accommodation that they have associated with the Invierno.

It appears 7th from the top. In addition the place immediately below it, Hostal As Viñas, is in the same town but I can't find it via Google. The Dutch do publish the address and phone number though.

If anyone wants this information and can't access the Dutch map themselves then I could re-publish it, on request.

Ah, the Hostal As Viñas. I stayed there once — Lovely couple, good home-cooked food, all clothes washed for you. For years it was on the verge of closing, the older couple trying to cajole their son to take over the business. He was working there, but not loving it and finally must have gotten a job he liked better. So they closed it.

Kinky has told great stories about his beer-drinking afternoons with the owner.

After the pensión closed, the town started with the makeshift albergue in the polideportivo, at least during summer months. It’s been several years, and it looks like it won’t be anytime soon.

And the Hotel Casa Suarna is in a town called Proba, so maybe they mixed it up with Pobra de Brollón.

Thanks for the sleuthing!
