Getting to Rabanal and Gaucelmo

I'll be leaving Chicago around April 28 and need to get to Rabanal and the Confraternity's refugio (just past Leon and Astorga). In the past I've flown into Madrid or Paris, but I'm wondering if there's a better way. Any special flights from London? Or from anywhere else? Or is Madrid and a bus still my best choice? Thanks.

300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).
yes, Madrid and bus/train, tho you could hire a car - would probably be faster if that's your criterion. Oviedo/Asturias, Valladolid and Santiago airports are all nearer, but you would have to go to Madrid or possibly London first to get there.

If you have a reason to go through London the Valladolid flight on Ryanair is a possibility there is a bus connection to Astorga.

If you have no reason to go via London the Madrid route is a better bet as Peter says.
