Luggage Transfer Madrid to Santiago


New Member
Time of past OR future Camino
Sarria to Santiago (2020)
Has anyone had experience transferring their suitcase from Madrid to Santiago using the El Camino con Correos service? We are doing further extensive travel after we finish our walk and would like to have our luggage waiting for us there. Also, can anyone confirm that the post office in Santiago is open on Sundays? Sunday will be the only chance we will have to collect. Thanks in advance.
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
The big Correos near the cathedral is open daily 0830-2030

Lots of reports on here of using Correos for bag transfer, but I’ve no personal experience.
You might consider asking to have it sent to the hotel where might stay as they will be open on a Sunday. This link does indicate Correos is open in Santiago on Sunday, but unsure if this is year round.
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

Also, can anyone confirm that the post office in Santiago is open on Sundays?

The link says that the Left Luggage service is available on Sundays, but post office services (which would include picking up a mailed suitcase) are Monday to Friday only.
