Hello, I am Ernesto and this is my house-hostel for donations for pilgrims La Casa de las Sonrisas in Grañón (Camino de Santiago Francés). It is one of the few private hostels that remain, which we finance exclusively with the donations of the pilgrims who stay there.

We do not receive any subsidy, help or support from any administration or association, and due to the covid-19, we need help to meet the costs while it is closed, as well as to reopen with the new measures decreed, to automatically be able to continue the hostel.

All donations will receive a special personalised souvenir from the Casa de las Sonrisas in thanks for helping us at this stage to continue our mission and work of welcoming and caring for pilgrims at the hostel.

Thank you very much to all.
