@peregrina2000 Is it possible that each of these threads could be in one subforum, rather than in the individual Camino subforums? I administer a couple of Camino FB groups, and I'd like to be able to point pilgrims to a single link.
If it's not possible to do I understand.

Let’s try to keep separate threads with all the news about albergue openings. Thanks to @Isca-camigo for another great bit of info.

Hi all,
Could someone please explain this list? Is it all of the albergues that are open now, or what? I'm asking for a friend who is considering walking the del norte this summer.

Various ones.
Hi Josh it's a partial list, it covers the Camino from near Vilavicioasa which is about 50km Oviedo or 30km before Gijon, I can't say about other albergues on the sections before. If I see any more albergues open then I will post them on here. The Basque associations are deciding whether they should open their places or not, they are run by volunteers so it is a difficult question for them. Wise pilgrim guides are updating lists for the Norte, a link was posted on the forum last night.

Buen Camino
