El Primitivo te espera (the Primitivo is waiting for you)

This video is a message from all of the members of the Camino Primitivo Entrepreneurs Association. It’s a bit long, a bit repetitive (since each member gets to tell you that the Primitivo is waiting for you when this is all over), but you will see all your favorite albergues, lots of familiar faces.


We can only hope that these businesses make it.

Buen camino, Laurie

Well that was wonderful to see! So great to see the faces and names of a few of the folks I met and places I stayed. Such a great idea to make this video message.

I remembered that the woman introducing the video mentioned a website.


The website has general travel suggestions, even a fabada recipe, but also a very pretty primitivo video. It reminded me that on my last primitivo I had wanted to take a detour to visit the 10th century church of San Pedro de Nora, but the path was totally overgrown and impassable. The Primitivo video shows that church (at about minute 2:23), so I am wondering if the path has been cleared or if anyone here on the forum has taken that short detour.

The video only deals with the part of the Primitivo that is in Asturias, but it is a very professional piece.

What a beautiful video! A question for anyone who can answer. I have walked 2 CP and 1 France from Burgos.
I am physically fit/active, but unfortunately fractured my hip on my second Portuguese and recouped for 5 months. Was scheduled to walk another Portuguese, but watching this video has me second guessing. Do you all think it is doable and could I send my pack ahead if need be? Any info greatly appreciated and stay safe everyone until we are able to walk again!

Some wonderful people here... dear old Domingo at Villapanada!
Yes! Domingo! Such a wonderful, welcoming man at his very well cared for albergue. I was also happy to see Natalia and Begoña at Castro. A special stay there with Begoña at the hotel and dinner with Natalia at the albergue.

On the video Natalia speaks in Galego which is the original language of Castro and Grandas.

I need to look into the Primitivo. After my Camino was cancelled (would have started the Frances on Wed) I decided when I was able to go that I would do a different one that was not as well traveled to help support the albergues and locals. Would this be a good one to walk when things are open whenever that will be? The people in the video look so kind and caring......it makes me sad that they (and eveyone in Spain) is suffering right now.

This year notwithstanding, the Primitivo can't really qualify as "not as well traveled" any more. I staff the 16-bed donativo municipal albergue at Grado, the first day's walk out of Oviedo. Every year we pack 'em in more, and in the high season we turn people away every day!
