Hi
Planning next few stages to Astorga. Does anyone know anything about the albergue in Alija del infantido? Is it open? (Gronze has it marked as ‘closed for works’)

I’m not sure how I can split the stages without staying in this village...

I can't be much help, but will comment anyway ;). Alija del infantido is not a tiny village - it looks like it had a history with thermal baths, extensive bodegas, etc. Years ago there was a hotel near the entrance - there were some old signs. I stayed in the albergue in 2017, near the entrance to the town. The next day as I walked through the town I remember thinking that there must be additional accommodation, but I couldn't confirm any. According to this sign (photo attached) there is a tourist office, an albergue and a restaurant (closed when I wanted it, so I ate junk food from the gas station). Maybe the tourist office could help, as the sign also mentions some recreational facilities.

With a little googling, I found these phone numbers for the Oficina de Turismo 987 667 201 / 675 681 125 . According to the web, it is open 09:00 to 14:00 Monday to Friday. Good luck!

Update: the albergue in Alija is now OPEN! Asked the Guardia Civil in the local bar and he asked the Mayor! Also met a perigrino who stayed there this week.
