I plan to walk Camino Mozarabe from Malaga in March. When I study all the info I can find, and plan my stages, I end up with this question: Is there or is there not an albergue open in Encinas Reales? Since I try to avoid much more than 30 km, this will be I place to stay for a night, but the information about the albergue here differ.

Hi, bjorts,

I've been collecting information about the various branches of the Camino Mozarabe, and this list of accommodations from the Andaluz Federation lists an "office" for pilgrims but no Albergue.

But Maggie (magwood) and George would know better -- they walked last year from Malaga. Have you seen her great blog?

Buen camino, Laurie

Thank you. Yes, it was that list that confused me. The Asociación Jacobea de Málaga have this information: "Servicios en Encinas Reales. Encinas tiene todos los servicios básicos. El Ayuntamiento (957 597 128) está en la Plaza de la Democracia s/n. El Albergue está en la Ermita del Calvario, en la salida de Encinas, dirección Antequera. Llave en Policía Local (629 718 918)."
I have seen the blog and the video of Maggie, but she did not stop in Encinas Reales, and say nothing about accommodation.
A blog - which I cannot find now, seaid that four walkers who had planed to stay in Encinas Reales could not find anyone to open the albergue. Do not remember which year.

Haven't walked Mozarabe but I think the situation might be similar to many villages on Levante where there are no albergues as such but ayuntamientos/policia local provides some sort of shelters (acogidas municipales) for pilgrims. Usually some sort of bed or gym mats, shower and that's it. I'd say it's maybe the same here because of location: la Ermita del Calvario.

I think I assumed there was no actual albergue. But you could phone the number for the ayuntamiento and ask. Or contact the amigos in Malaga. I am sure they would either know, or find out for you.
I will be happy to try and help with any other queries you may have.
Buen Camino.

Thank you. Yes, I can phone them. I think I will. From what I have read from others, it seems to be several nice and pretty new albergues on this route, so I thought it might be different from the situation on Levante. (I have walked Levante from both Alicante and Valencia. I have walked Mozarabe too, but not Malaga - Cordoba, so hope to do so in March 2017.)

:D You haven't walk Levante from Alicante - that might be Sureste ;)

OK. Combining Sureste and Levante in different ways and different parts, starting both from Valencia (Levante) and Alicante (Sureste). Better? The subject was another this time, so it was not so important to be exact about those details, I thought. Bjorg
