Good afternoon Pilgrim's!

Last year I met an American Pilgrim who suggested that I should meet with a man called Mau in his home that he calls the Temple of Peace. I believe it is located between San Anton and Castrojeriz.

Has anyone heard of this man, met him or could you shed light on this temple of peace and how I could go about making contact.

Many thanks
Kevin 🤠

Yes, I have seen the place, but have never stayed there. Have you tried Googling it?
Thanks for your reply and maybe you could elaborate, my googling efforts have been unproductive. Can you specify exact location please?

I'm sorry. I have no more information.
I just remember seeing it on the right hand side of the road as I walked.
Let me see what I can find out.

I would appreciate that, in my research I've stumbled across an interesting site that lists all alburgues across the route. I can't seem to locate any Alburgue referring to Temple of Peace. When you happened upon it did it look like an Alburgue and is it alongside the main walking route therefore i'll just happen upon it when I get there

It seems it was right along the Camino. I rarely walk off of it. I remember it being on the right and seeing prayer flags, smelling incense, etc. He may not advertise. I don't know.

Im surprised you didn't pop in, sounds intriguing. I'm looking forward now more than ever to finding out more when I get there. Does it look like the sort of place that you could stay in overnight?

@Rich1 your reference to
Castrojeriz was catalyst for search 'mau near Castrojeriz' and look what turned up, mystery solved. Apparently it's called the temple of silence, might explain why my American friend suggested I ought to visit 🤠🙏

A special encounter in Castrojeriz


© Nia Peiro

Touching moments watching this one and other photos Nia Peiro made with and of Mau Mariani.

Accompanied by pure wise words. There is one quote - the one that spoke loudest to my heart - I want to share with you: the ideal man is he who, in the moments of most intense activity, knows how to find the silence and the loneliness of the desert. This man has achieved sHospital del Alma, the hospital of the soul. Sure it can be.
Meanwhile (2018) the house is called The Temple of Silence

The garden
The Wild Chapel

Yep it is my blog. No albergue. No internet. Place to stay for reflection along the way in the small town of Castrojeriz, right at the camino.

A lovely sign, pilgrim face making one half of the shape of a heart with the other embracing love. Give out love, get love back. Thank you everyone for enlightening me further. Tomorrow I will explain the significance of this meeting with destiny 🤠
Did you meet Mau Derrybiketours?

Again, soon as possible!
I have popped into the Temple of Silence a few times now. Incredible place. First time I was walking with a German Cop, and we are both ex military. When we left the building we just stood in the street and cried. It had such an effect on us.

Remember to turn your phone off before you go in. And do not talk.

One thing Mau teaches is 'Never mention or even think Kilometers. Just walk'.

It used to be Hospital of the Soul, now it's Temple of Silence. It is not an albergue. Mau can often be found over behind Albergue Monasterio de San Anton, where he and his partner are building a little summer home and garden.
They are open only in the warm-weather months.
Rebekah, do you remember the name of Mau’s partner? I stayed at the San Antón albergue twice while she was there as Hospitalera, but I can’t recall her name and would like to. Thanks

Many, various, and continuing.

Her name is Kornelia, or just Nela. She from Poland, but lives in Germany.
I used to do staffing at San Anton. I got to know them both a bit. Very sweet spirits.

Thanks very much Rebekah :) . For me, staying at the albergue (in its magical location) and visiting Mau’s very special ‘house of silence’ were both memorable highlights of my Camino. <3

Unfortunately he didn't get the opportunity to meet me as he departed for Holliday 4 days before my arrival but I did get to meet Monia at San Anton which was enough for me, always a reason to return 🤠

I couldn't agree more. I also met Monia when I stayed there a couple of years ago; what a beautiful person...in all ways. Buen Camino! :)
