There were a couple of threads last year about websites that were keeping updated lists of which albergues were open. One was from @wisepilgrim
Does anyone know if there are sites tracking the openings of albergues for this year?

I don’t know of any websites, but I do know one albergue that has just opened — Albergue Maralotx in Cirauqui. Some forum members may remember Juanma and Paloma from the albergues in Ponte Ferreira on the Primitivo. They are now on the Francés and their place looks great.

Is Gronze.com considered to be pretty accurate regarding which albergues are open? I generally refer people to Gronze when questions like this come up.

I stayed there autumn 2010 and 2011; the wine cellar was a great space for dinner.

In my experience Gronze is quite accurate but their information comes from the albergue owners themselves meaning if they do not supply updated information to Gronze, the information may be inaccurate.

When I took over Albergue Villares de Orbigo I wrote Gronze myself to update the information. They were very timely in responding and changing the website.

Some sites contact the albergues directly, such as @wisepilgrim did last year but not all.

From what I'm hearing, privates on the Francés are opening up now. I have yet to hear about municipals (those in Galicia even are still closed) or parochials.

I stayed there in april 2019 and had a great stay. Their dinner in the wine cellar was superb! A memorable stay.

Anyone know if Camino del Perdon at Uterga is open? I sent an e-mail several days ago, but received no answer. I stayed there in 2013, and would like to stay in September 2021.

According to gronze.com they will open in July. This is maybe why they do not answer emails at the moment.

Thanks Marc S. I was able to book at Casa Maralotx in Cirauqui for the following night. Juanma and Paloma there told me that Camino del Perdon in Uterga is closed now. They have been trying to contact them, too, and have had no response to e-mails. Good to know they may be reopening in July. I will try them later. Carole (Ritescot)
