Mailing a Supply Box ahead to Correos

Hi folks.

I'm sure this is supposed to be easy to find but I've ben roaming the Correos website without success.
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

I'm not looking for Paq Mochila
And not looking to send stuff ahead to Santiago (Ivar is great for that).

But I'll be walking one of the longer routes next and want to mail ahead a Supply Box.
I'll mail in Sevilla, for collection maybe in Salamanca or another large town.

I have a few 'consumables' to carry and would rather mail 1/2 of my supply ahead.
Plus a few other items, that will need replacing after a while.

So I'm curious to find out:

1. What that service is called. Often known at Post Restante I think, elsewhere in the World.
2. Common 'main' post office opening hours. I presume I'll need to collect Mon-Fri or maybe they are open Saturday?

Any 'pointers' appreciated.
