COMMUNICATION TO PARTNERS
At the meeting held on June 9, 2020, the Board of the Association of Friends of the Roads of Santiago de Álava agreed, among other points, on the following:
1.- The headquarters of the Association will remain closed until further notice, so no credentials will be issued.
2.- All the activities scheduled for the year 2020, which were foreseen in the annual sheet, are suspended.
3.- The hostels on their way through the Basque Country will remain closed until further notice.
Hopefully this anomalous situation will last as little as possible and in the next year we can resume all activities.
Greetings to all.
The Board of Directors

As of a couple of days ago, I can confirm that the above information is correct. I don't know about Haro and Miranda de Ebro but I assume that there has been no changes.
