Hullo Sil,

I stayed there with my daughter in November last year. It's a very nice place, exceptional even. It looks as if it was designed as a hotel, then turned into an albergue at the last moment. Enormous and exceptionally outfitted kitchen, and hotel standard amenities. Well heated, until 10:00pm at least. Three bunks per room. Very friendly reception. Not far from a supermarket that you pass on the way to the albergue. There was one other pilgrim, and there were two non-pilgrims there on the night we stayed, so not sure what their policy is. The signposting is sparse but accurate. Have faith and keep on going and you'll land up at the albergue eventually

Thank you Donovan.
A friend who is a school headmistress will be walking with a group of 11 (8 scholars) in June and needed a place to stay that was a larger than the old albergue outside Negreira. This sounds like a perfect place for her group.

I loved this albergue. Clean, spacious. It's slightly off the way and sort of hard to find (but then I hadn't planned ahead) but not at all inconvenient.

Sil,

As kellyz says, this place is a little off the trail, but trust the signs and they will get you there. There just aren't many of them, so doubts crept in, but we decided to trust the signs and found the place without trouble.

I'm sure I'm telling you something you already know, however.....The Finisterre option is getting quite popular, and with a party of that size booking ahead (if possible) would be prudent. We walked Le Puy to Finisterre last year, arriving in Finisterre mid-November. The only full albergues we encountered on the entire route were at Olveiroa and Corcubion. We loved this section, not to be missed. I believe there is now at least one additional albergue, I think it is in Vilaserio. We looked in at the school there, listed in the CSJ guide, and it looked OK but very basic. Perhaps it has been upgraded. I have also heard of an albergue named Casa Esperanza with 10 beds in Maronas, but nothing definite

Albergue San Jose was my own little camino sanctuary last summer. We arrived there with me already in so much foot pain that I coud hardly walk anymore. They next morning after checking out we went to a local hospital where the doc told me that my plantar fascitis (?) was really bad and I should - of course - stop walking. This seems o be the preferd advice but wth only 60km to go there was no way of stopping now.
The lady at San Jose was lovely! She let us back in early, made sure I bed in a private corner as I was half passed out from all the pankillers and gave me extra pillows to prop my foot up. While I slept the whole day she let my walking partner use the internet for ages and gave him loads of tips on how to make the whole situation better.
The facilities were great with loads of free stuff in the kitchen and the most amzing showers on the whole camino. In the morning she let us stay longer than the normal leaving time so I could give my foot another soak in warm salt water. One of the loveliest people I've met on the camino!

A bit OT but but here I'd like to think of my camino angle - an italian doctor who basically fixed my foot for me bu showing me excercises to relieve the tendons in Negreira. Whitout him I woudnt have made it to Fisterre!

I am planning to walk to Finnistere once I rest in Santiago a bit, I'm finding it really hard to get any info on how or where to get the credential for it, and albergue info along the way as I know it's scarce. I plan to try to give myself 5 days to get there. Then bus from Finnistere back to Santiago.
ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED

In Santiago the Galicia Tourist Office at 30 rua de Vilar near the cathedral provides an invaluable free multilingual list of ALL services on the Finisterre/Muxia paths including accommodations, restaurants/bars, buses/taxis. They can also provide a special Credential for your journey.

Also check out their handy on-line English guide to the Finisterre/Muxia caminos.

Good luck and Buen camino!
