Blankets in albergues on Camino Portuguese?

September 2016
Am planning to walk the Camino Portuguese in September 2018 and I would like to leave my sleeping bag home and just take my silk liner. Will all albergues provide blankets both on Coastal and inland route? Marie Christian

Hi, the Xunta (municipal) albergues in Galicia do not provide blankets, e.g. at Porrino.

The private albergues all provide blankets.

Thank you for asking this question Marie. We too are planning mid-Sept to mid-Oct and would like to know if a silk liner would be sufficient. Eager to see more replies. Hope to meet you en caminio

Reasonably sure if the OP and responders walked this Sept, you noticed how unseasonably hot it was. I only used my silk liner until the very last few days of Sept. Arrived in Santiago 10/01/2018...Agree that private albergue's will mostly have blankets, but municipal do not.
