Albergues and hostals - Camino Mozarabe

VDLP (2018)
Dear all,
I am planning to walk the camino Mozarabe in October starting from Almeria and I am looking for infromation about albergues or hostals along the route.
I am wondering if anyone who may have walked the route might have a list of these albergues. This will be of great help to me. Also maybe one could give me some links for the information.
Meanwhile I thank you in advance.
Regards,
Ray

Hi, Ray,
Here is a link to the most recent version of the amigos guide. It is really all you need. They update it monthly to change the phone numbers of hospitaleros etc. Definitely be in touch with them, they are a great bunch of people.

Anyone planning to walk from Almeria must contact the Amigos, there’s a new system in place, a number of the albergues they control have a key safe next to the door, on arrival you ‘phone a contact number for the code to access the key.

And in case anyone is wondering how to contact them, the phone numbers and email addresses are on the Almeria Jacobea website:
Or you can contact them via Facebook:

And ... If pilgrims who plan to stay at the Albergue in Tocon de Quentar are advised to phone before you get there because there's no signal in the village.

Camino Francis 2012, 2014, 2016. Camino Norte 2018. Many more to come in my future God willing !
Yes, I just caught that. Some stages on Gronzes do bring up Booking, but not for Albergues.

Thanks

Thank You Laurie,
I found this link very useful and although in Spanish it is very eay to follow.
I am planning 20 days for the whole walk which means an average of 30km a day. Will have two rest days in Granada and Cordoba. Do you think it is possible. Last year I walked an average of 33kms on the Via de la Plata. However I am not sure if this time will be a more difficult one.
I appreciate your help.
Thank you and best regards,
Ray

Hi, Ray,
Here are my stages. https://www.caminodesantiago.me/com...n-the-mozárabe-from-almería-april-2018.55899/
On Day 21, I was in Mérida. One obvious way to combine two days into one would be Day 1 and 2. I walked out from Almería to Rioja and then back on a bus to Almería in order to meet up with the amigos and forum members. There were about 15 of us. Then the next day, taxi to Rioja and on. It would be a very long first day, with some ups and downs and rocky descents, but do-able I guess.

If 39km seems ambitious for Day 1, there are albergues in Santa Fe de Mondujar (24km from Almeria) and Santa Cruz de Marchena (36km from Almeria).
I think it's worth noting that those early stages on dry riverbeds are more strenuous than the distances and gains in elevation would suggest. You might find that 24km feels more like 30km. Fortunately, the network of albergues gives you several options on this part of the Camino. Between Granada and Cordoba, you don't have such flexibility.
If you can make it as far as Santa Cruz on Day 1, then the stage to Abla is 32km and you've done Stages 1-3 in two days. It's more than I could manage but I'm sure it would be ideal for some people.
If you only get as far as Santa Fe on Day 1, you're not quite at "escape velocity." Nonetheless, with some creativity (e.g. stay overnight an unlisted Casa Rural in Cogollos de Guadix and walk straight through Guadix), you could reach Granada a day faster than Peregrina2000. But what a shame not to stop in Guadix.

Myself and hubby walked from Malaga to Antequera a few years ago. Hoping to continue from Antequera to Córdoba in October. Just wondering if above info re keys also applies to our route ?

Their Facebook site is a good source of information. In case you don't use Facebook, the phone number shown is +34 619 86 01 98. You can also look at the website, which has phone numbers and email address .

No. As far as I know, only the albergues between Almeria and Granada work that way.
You can find info.on albergues from Antiquera to Cordoba on the Malaga Association website. In all cases, it appears that you need to get in touch with the town hall to access the municipal albergues:

From Baena onwards, the Malaga Camino merges with the other Caminos. Keys for unattended albergues are sometimes held by the town hall and sometimes by the local police etc.

Even though the route from Baena is not managed by the Almeria association, I recommend downloading their guide, which has information on albergues as far as Merida and is updated frequently.
