List of recommended Albergues, Monasteries and Convents on Camino del Norte/Primitivo

Camino(s) past & future
St Jean PDP to Santiago de Compostela 2016
Via Podiensis 2017
Hi everyone We're beginning to plan our 3rd camino - Camino del Norte and on to the Primitivo. When we walked both the Camino Frances and Via Podiensis, we gleaned loads of information from others on this forum (thanks Ivar!!) who had already walked the route - the simple 'pilgrim' accomodations (yes ...even the mats on the floor!) and the feeling of confraternity with fellow pilgrims. Does anyone know of a list that exists or does anyone have any recommendations for us? Thanks! In anticipation :) (from Australia)

this is a list I made for my 2016 camino and updated a bit in may 2018: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/com...mmodation-list-for-camino-del-norte-2016.493/. there are a few closed albergues (in san vicente de la barquera, most notably) and perhaps a new one open somewhere.

it's always best to check with gronze: https://www.gronze.com/camino-norte.
Great work. Saved me a of of time. Now I have to visit Gronze only when the info in this list is inaccurate. Thanks.
