All hostels in the province of Leon will be inspected by technicians from the Ministry of Trade and Tourism to adapt to new regulations that companies are recognized as tourist activities.
This was one of the realities that was apparent in the training day of hostels on the Camino de Santiago held on the morning of yesterday in the plenary hall of the delegation of León Castilla y León.
The Director General of Tourism of the Ministry of Tourism and Commerce of the Junta de Castilla y León, Rosa Urbón confirmed that the regional administration is working to 'regulate' the situation of pilgrim shelters that populate the camino as it passes through the autonomous region.
The new guidelines were issued by the Junta de Castilla y León last September where they "ordered" shelters on the Camino de Santiago to be ranked with one, two or three shells, depending on the their quality. It also established the category of those shelters that operate as nonprofit and those who do not charge anything or are supported by contributions from the pilgrims.
The objectives of the new rules focused on fighting intrusion and ensure quality of facilities and services offered by shelters.
Urbón Rosa insisted that new legislation was not intended to hurt anybody, but that all shelters "must be entered in the register of companies of tourism activities, but only if they meet the minimum requirements quality". These requirements involve simple issues such as minimal attention to the pilgrims, receiving them, heating, telephone, control of standards and health.
On the controversy arose over whether the barrier of five dollars to pay for the pilgrims is the limit for documenting shelters or nonprofit. The director general of Tourism was emphatic in stating that "Castile and Leon makes no quantity. What is at issue" he adds, " is to regulate the industry as there are establishments that have for years been operating without any registration."
