Time of past OR future Camino
September 2019
I am starting the Camino Portugues (from Baiona) next week. Are masks going to be required anywhere?
€2,-/day will present your project to thousands of visitors each day. All interested in the Camino de Santiago.
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.

I fly into Madrid on Thursday, then taking the train to Oviedo on Friday and starting the Primitivo. Can anyone tell me what the current mask policies are in those areas?

I just saw that the QR code/spth entry requirements changed in the past couple of weeks, wondering if other requirements have eased as well.

Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

In Spain they are required in public transport, pharmacies and any medical office. Except for that, they are not required anywhere.
…and they enforce it on public transportation. We were on a train from Madrid to Pamplona before starting the Camino. Train workers walked through the cars and made anyone not wearing a mask (we had ours on) put one on.
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.
