New albergues on the Olvidado — Nov. 2021

Update from Ender today on the albergue status on the Olvidado.

New albergues in Riello and Boñar are hopefully going to be open by April. The albergue in Riello will help a LOT with staging.

The municipal albergue in Puente de Almuhey will (re-)open this month (but I would still highly recommend the apartments of The Duende de Carricuende.

Guardo has an albergue, but the guys who had the concession have left it, unfortunately. The town is hoping to get someone in soon. (But there are private options, a couple of hotels).

Hostal Rabocán in Beberino (after Buiza and before Pola de Gordón, so also on the Salvador) has joined in to offer rooms to peregrinos.

New albergue opening soon in Noceda, which was not a town the Camino Olvidado pased through before. But they are re-routing it between Igüeña and Labaniego because of the albergue.

Albergue in Congosto (which I think is new).

Bosque de Los Sueños in Cubillos has also. joined to provide accommodation.

Cabañas Raras has what appears to be a lovely albergue in a wooden cabin, but many/most pilgrims on the Olvidado go straight to Ponferrada from Congosto. If you are going to continue on the Francés, though, you will go from Congosto to Cabañas Raras and on to Cacabelos and Villafranca.

Note that these are just the NEW places, to be added to the many already noted in the guide and website.

And don’t forget the showstopper in La Magdalena.

This is very good news for me, as I have decided to walk the Olvidado as my next camino. I am at present in a restaurant in Frankfurt airport greedily scoffing down some lunch (my first meal since yesterday's lunch) prior to boarding a flight home to Calgary. It is time to go home, but I shall walk again. I am about to search for information on the Olvidado and to register in another Spanish class. Information on early churches on the Olvidado and camino routes west of where it terminates are also of interest.
I have just finished my time as a hospitalera in Nájera and might schedule another two weeks next year, in a different albergue. But I need a few months with my own bed and bath and church before I take off again. And happy planning to all.

Thank you. We're planning on both the Olvidado and Invierno in October and November 2022 so this is a great resource.
