Monastery at Oseira

Steve S

I have recently read conflicting reports about whether or not the Monastery at Oseira is still taking pilgrims. Does anyone know?

Time of past OR future Camino
Cycled from Scotland,walked Francias, walked V.D.L.P, winter on Francais, stroll on Englaise
My info on this is from this time last year.
We (4) pilgrims were allowed to stay overnight in the monesterio. Forget about the described single luxury cells or food being available. They are booked months in advance by folks on retreat. We were greeted very kindly and shown to a large stone room where we slept on the floor. The two bars outside the walls were able to provide very simple food - salad, no meat or fish.
I really enjoyed staying there.

Yes, it's possible. It cost 20 euros, I think, and you have to call by telephone the day before to have a place.

Impossible on summer, because the "turigrinos".

Buen Camino,

A great book to listen to while training for the Camino or to relive the experience!

I'm not sure if just to sleep or it includes dinner. But the telephone number is: +34.988.28.20.04

But in any case, to sleep into lets you to stay in the religious activities in the monestry, and ... really I'm not sure, finally I couldn't sleep there.

Buen Camino,

I'm playing with dates, and flights and all that good stuff. My preferred VdlP dates at this stage have me starting right in the middle of Semana Santa. So my thoughts at this stage are...
Has anybody walked this route at this time of the year (last week in February 1st 2 weeks in March)?. If so are there albergues open and are the conditions OK? Thanks
