The news says that for Xacobeo21, disabled pilgrims will be allowed to make reservations in public albergues of Xunta de Galicia.
Also says:
- The Xunta albergues are going to be conditioned for disabled pilgrims.
- Some stages in Galicia and other Comunidades Autónomas will have audioguide system for blind pilgrims.
- 70 defribillators are going to be provided in Xunta albergues (all of them).

The albergue at Ribadiso da Baixo has beautifully appointed accessible private facilities for pilgrims with limitations. Ultreia and thanks to the Xunta de Galicia.

Is it clear how ‘disabled’ is to be defined in this context?

No idea, but it's likely a variable -- France for example issues no disability card unless you are 80% handicapped + (AKA basically wheelchair-bound), even if you are recognised as a handicapped person and on benefits conditionally from being handicapped more than 50% as I am.

But I will bring along my French disability papers when I start again next year, even though they are written in the most arcane and bureaucratically impenetrable manner imaginable, likely to be viewed as gibberish by any sensible non-French person unfamiliar with French bureaucratic madness.

You need a card or similar to show to the hospitaler@ on arrival. They MAY skip this part if the handicap is obvious, like when you arrive in a wheel chair. If it is less obvious it is well worth having the card PLUS a translation of it!, at hand. BC SY
