2000 I walked 300km of the Camino Frances.
2020 I plan to walk the whole 800km.
Hi everyone,
Does anyone have a list of convents and monasteries that provide accommodation for pilgrims on the Camino Frances?

In addition, around 34km from Roncesvalles, Zabaldika. Parochial, but the sisters who live on site organise evening prayer and are there for anyone who wants to talk/be listened to... then 3km further on, Trinidad de Arre no longer has the religious community, but the hospitalero has a strong commitment to the church side of things, or had last time I met him...
I began this before Doughnutnz posted... Zabaldika began in 2013, I think.

I would have thought that Zabaldika would be on this list

The nuns who run Zabaldika are RSCJ (I'm a product of several of this order's schools for girls but please don't blame the ladies at Zabaldika for how I turned out, none I attended were in Spain 😇)

I believe the Albergue's only open April 15- October 15, though I could be wrong. They may respond to messages on their Facebook page in the winter to confirm directly:

You are correct about dates. Two of the community speak English. Even if the albergue is closed, pilgrims who ring the doorbell are welcome to use the bathroom and if the sisters are not busy a visit to the church is possible. The short sharp climb up is worth it, and you don’t need to retrace your steps to continue on the Camino towards Trinidad de Arre.

Because it is "between stops" few pilgrims get to see the Convento de la Trinidad in the town of Trinidad de Arre (just before Pamplona) built in the 11th century. Most pilgrims will go all the way to Pamplona.
Notice the ogival arches in the doorway. The wood carved and gold-leaf triptychs altar (Basilica) is stunning. IMG_0135.JPG IMG_0136.JPG

I stayed there in August 2016. The brother was very hospitable and joined us for wine and conversation in the evening. Memorable.

Yes a really lovely place.
I have a vague memory that the Marist Brothers left a couple of years ago? But that the albergue is still functioning? I am NOT stating this, but really asking if anyone can confirm whether the Brothers are still there or not.

The Marists have gone, and a man and his family live there and care for pilgrims. I am sorry, I forget his name. He has a Facebook page.
