Hi, I am planning to do this camino in June 22. Is there any web side with etapas, albergues, distances of this camino? Are any bars, markets on the way? I will be really happy for any advice.

Hi, Tatjana!

I just came back from that wild camino, and there is indeed just about enough accommodation options and services along the way, but first of all, please notice you will need a GPS, maps and tracks if you want to follow this camino, the signposting is not the best.
Here you can find some practical information



and here too



if you need any help or more details, please let me know! I did it in 8 stages, and found all accommodation options good value and excellent quality, except for Casa Lucita in Berán, a place to be avoided at all costs!

OTher than that, it is indeed a beautiful camino!

Thanks Amancio. I will be really grateful for accomodation. Can you send me places were you stayed. :) Also look that web side rayyrosa.com. Were any pilgrims on the way, did you walk alone?

Hi!
I only found 1 Lithuanian and 1 Portuguese pilgrim in 8 days. I stayed in pensions, did not even bring a towel or a sleeping bag!

PORTO
Central House Ribeira 40 Rua de São João T. +351 222 450 029
very handy, they have a beautiful web site, or you might try booking.com or any other agent, 21 euro per single bed

BRAGA
Old City Guest House Rua Dom Frei Caetano Brandão, n. 143 +351 935 016 262
Ines is a lovely landlady, this house is just 100 meter from the cathedral!, 23 euro per single bed

TERRAS DE BOURO
Pensao Rio Homem, +351 253 351 136
25 euro per single bed, be kind to yourself and treat yourself to dinner in their restaurant!!! The price includes some breakfast, or else a picnic to take with you

LOBIOS
AV Apartamentos, Francisco, 609 847 933
clean, functional, a luxury for 20 euro if you tell Francisco you are a pilgrim, very helpful man

CASTRO LABOREIRO
Hotel Castrum Villae, very central, 23 euro per person, booked through Internet, opposite the hotel, A Tasquinha Castreja is a great place for dinner, and the bakery A Castrejinha has some stunning bread and sweets (and a small shop)

CORTEGADA

Casa Conde, talk to Quique 988 48 30 / 44 686 70 63 49 / 687 298 890
beautiful old house in the town center, the kitchen is extremely well equipped

BERÁN
Casa Lucita, old, dirty, very expensive, the lady refused to tell me her rates and charged us 10 euro for an awful frozen food dinner. Worst of all is the fact that she refused time and time again to tell me how much it would cost to have dinner or breakfast. TO BE AVOIDED, she charged us 40 euro per person. The rooms are tiny, windows do not close properly, it is like a horror movie of a place, only one toilette and shower for all the rooms. NEVER AGAIN.
PAZOS DE ARENTEIRO
Ramiro manages a beautiful rural house in a gorgeus, clean, old small town, a garden overlooking the river... charges 40 euro per fully lined bed, including dinner (but no drink), or else 20 euro just a bed with no dinner or bed linen. I should have stayed here instead of in Berán.
BEARIZ
Bar centro, 988 28 40 10, Celia, has an appartment in good condition, a bit aged, but with good beds, the kitchen is splendidly equipped, wort every cent of the 15 euro per person! Central, and a nice bar too.
CODESEDA
Casas A Peregrina, or Do Avó, FRAN will help you on everything, phone is 682 52 81 29 / 654 72 82 66, the house is a luxury (20 euro per single bed), with swimming pool and a huge kitchen, but it is worth having dinner in the Oak Tree park just 100 meters away, "Camino da Geira" is the name, Pepe and Maricarmen are just adorable, excellent food, great value.

twice the price of any other pension, it is the setting for a horror movie, the landlady is not honest or reliable, food is awful, place is dirty, old, windows are rusty and do not close well. A nightmare of a place, she will rip you off.

Probably there is other possibility to stay somewhere else than Casa Lucita? Or not?

you can taxi back to Ribadavia (12 euro), or stay in Pazos de Arenteiro instead. Ribadavia is worth a long stop, you could do Cortegada-Ribadavia, then Ribadavia-Pazos de Armenteiro the following day, for example.
