Any information on Villanueva de Campean?


Staff member
I see there's a small albergue in this town outside Zamora, but can't find any information on what else, if anything, is in the town. Is this one of those "bring your own food" places to stop?

Thanks, Laurie

There are two albergues.
One public and one private.
The private one, on the right as you come into the village, is new and of excellent quality. It is run by the very friendly bar owner and his wife, a bit further on your left. They provide lunch and dinner.
You can have a private room or stay in the dormitory. I stayed in a private room last september and enjoyed it to the utmost.

re Villanueva de Campean,
We stayed there on 19th April 2010 on our Camino from Salamanca to Santiago. It is a private albergue in a tiny village 18.5 klm outside Zamora. We were with a small group of 4 people who stayed in the dormitory. The weather was cold and wet and a heater was provided to dry clothes. It was clean and well run and there was plenty of hot water for showers. There was a bar there which provided everything required: all meals and breakfast next day. They also made salad rolls (bocadillos) for us to take away nexy day for lunch- all very cheaply! There was no other shop there!
There is a pulic albergue there too but it looked shut down to us. We didn't meet anyone from there.

Hi there rit, I stayed in the public albergue at Villanueva de Campean back in March, 2010 when I walked from Astorga down the Via de la Plata to Fuenterroble de Salvatierre. It has a large bunk room with heater/fan, two bathrooms with showers & hot water, and an eating area with microwave. Everything was very clean and it cost 6 euros. Cheers, Lovingkindness
