Hi there!

I'm doing some research on the last 100km on the Primitivo. If you start in Lugo, what are options on accomodation (all sorts, albergues, privates, hotel, luxury...) available for a first stop after Lugo, around the 20km mark?

On Gronze and Eroski, I see accomodation in San Roman da Retorta and Ferreira. Anything else in between?

EDIT: This link, posted in another thread about food, is very useful:

Just wondering if there are any more options :)

Hola Anamya, I walked there 5 weeks ago but I don't remember anything else except for 2 albergues in San Roman da Retorta. I stayed at Albergue O Cándido.

In this part of the resource section you can also find a link to a list of albergues for the whole Primitivo. It is in KML, GPX and PDF.

We stayed at Cruz Ferreira in May, on the east side of Ferreira. I believe it was about 7k from San Roman de Retorta. As best I recall, we were the only pilgrims at the albergue that night. Although I'm sure the hospitalero was disappointed with the lack of pilgrims, he took very good care of us.

I have stayed at Albergue Candido twice now, and thoroughly enjoyed both times

Although they have received some negative comments on Gronze https://www.gronze.com/galicia/lugo/san-roman-da-retorta/albergue-candido, I was happy to stay there. It was a bit tiring day with lots of asphalt and with some rain when I arrived so I was extremely happy I could get a bed. (I know the other albergue is very small and I had no chance to get a place there at 5 pm.) There were a lot of Spanish youngsters so the 2 hospitaleros were very busy but kind and helpful. To my surprise, I was allone in a 3-bed room with a bathroom and paid only 10 Euros. Hurra! :D

Hola Anamya
I have an alternative route for you . I returned in May from my Camino Primativo / Verde / Norte .
I found an alternate route from Lugo to Santiago that will bypass all but the last days walk to Santiago.

https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/resources/alternative-route-for-joining-camino-frances-later-off-the-camino-del-norte.509/
These two links in this forum explain the route.
I did it in 5 days /4 nights, the longest days were 24km (twice).
If you like quiet and peaceful walking in the Spanish countryside I recommend it.
