Hi, I’m hoping to walk the Via de la Plata again starting 18th of April, when I walked through Almaden a couple of years ago the big municipal albergue at the top of the village had been burned out, anyone got any up to date information? Did anyone stay last year?
Regards
George

George.

Hi,
the albergue was already restored and reopened in June 2019. I stayed in the private albergue "Casa de Reloj" then, but I visited a friend who stayed there and thought that for 10 €/p. P. and night the public albergue was the better bargain (bigger kitchen, more spacious and cooler inside).

Hi, It was really weird, when we walked through in '18 we were supprised to find that two albergues in a small village had been involved in what looked like serious fires ??

As far as I read in a spanish newspaper, the fire was caused by a person, who was mentally insane. There were no woodfires in this area so far.
