Accommodation on the Camino

David Mercer

New Member
Hi everyone,

This is my first post.

I am after some information regarding accommodation on the Camino.

My wife and I are planning to set up a bunkhouse catering for the needs of pilgrims and we need to know a) where one is needed and b) where would be a nice place to live! I would imagine that those of you who have done the Pilgrimage would have a good idea as to the answers to these questions. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Nice place to live

My wife and I are planning to set up a bunkhouse catering for the needs of pilgrims and we need to know a) where one is needed and b) where would be a nice place to live!

a) Refugios/Albergues are needed most on the less traveled routes such as Camino Primitivo and Via de la Plata, but if this is to be a paying concern that will not be any use to you.

b) Where would I like to live? Anywhere in the Bierzo valley outside Ponferrada or maybe Navarra or Galicia.

Hi David,

Welcome to the board!

As you may know, I move to Galicia with my wife last year and I love it here.

When it comes to where there is a need for a bunkhouse... I think if you do it well, there will be no problems getting "customers". Of course, closer to Santiago = more pilgrims.

Please let me know if you have any more questions regarding "Living in Galicia".

Greetings from 14c and cloudy Santiago de Compostela,
Ivar

What a wonderful thing to do - hope it goes well.
If you were thinking of a pilgrim refuge, I think that there are some rules and regulations to abide by. Check with the Santiago Office before you go to any expense.
