Finisterre to Santiago

Mo chara

On route 21st-26th July with my wife on our first Camino. Question what is the best to stay in pension, hostel, alberque or what? Not looking for 4* but basic clean quality accomodation where we can eat as well. Has anyone covered this route and can provide a list of stops and costs?

At you can find a listing of the albergues as well as other accommodation between Finisterre and Santiago. I have walked this route five times in the past years and would be happy to provide you with further information if you send me a personal message.

The way I do in 4 stages:
Stage 1-Negreira (22km): I recommend the Hotel "Tamara" sleeping 45 € the double room,
Stage 2-Abeleiroas (26km): The hotel "Casa Jurjo" in La Picota Mazaricos, is 4 km from Olveiroa but you are free to pick up the road, in my case I picked up at Lago 25 km from Negreira.
Stage 3-Cee (25km): The Hotel "Insua" in the center of town
Stage 4-Finisterre (17km): Hotel "Playa Langosteira"
In all the room rates are € 45/55.
The phones and emails of the sites I have not but Google surely come.

2002 CF: 2004 from Paris: 2006 VF: 2007 CF: 2009 Aragones, Ingles, Finisterre: 2011 X 2 on CF: 2013 'Caracoles': 2014 CF and Ingles 'Caracoles":2015 Logrono-Burgos (Hospitalero San Anton): 2016 La Douay to Aosta/San Gimignano to Rome:
This is from Johnnie Walker's guide:

From the Praza do Obradoiro in Santiago and with your back to the cathedral, pass in front of the Hostal de la Reyes Católicos (on your R), go down the slope in front of its garage (this is the Costa do Cristo), then down some steps and along the Rúa das Hortas ahead. (Many of the older houses on this street have scallop shells in the stone lintels above the doors). Veer R at the end into Rúa Campo das Hortas and turn L at traffic lights to cross Rúa do Pombal via pedestrian crossing. Continue ahead down Rúa do Cruceiro do Gaio (the first of two streets in front of you) and then along the Rúa da Poza de Bar (unnamed at start); this then becomes the Rúa de San Lourenzo.
At the Carballeira de San Lourenzo (a small, shady park with seats, a fountain and a lot of old oak trees) there is the first camino tile and clear yellow arrows. Here you can either:
a) Keep Straight On ahead to visit the (former Franciscan monastery) church of San Lourenzo de Trasouto (normal visiting hours Tuesdays and Thursdays 11-1 & 4.30-6-30, otherwise open at Mass times) and then retrace your steps, crossing the Carballeira diagonally alongside the monastery garden wall (on the Costa do Cano) and veering L to pick up the camino ahead or:
b) turn R (coming from the cathedral) down the Roblada de San Lourenzo (signposted “Sanatorio”). Shortly afterwards veer L down a cement road (Corredoira dos Muiños) leading you downhill to cross the bridge over the Río Sarela in hamlet of Ponte Sarela.

Or - just follow other pilgrims also walking to Fistera!
