Hi All, can anyone tell me the opening times of post offices in Leon and Santiago? My partner and I are plannning to arrive in Leon on a Saturday and wanted to post some of our things on to Santiago, which we will then also pick up on a Saturday (two weeks later).

Are post offices open on a Saturday?

Post Offices

You could email the two Post Offices for info:

Leon: op.leon@correos.es (That is the main Post office)

Santiago: op.santiagocompostela.acoruna@corresos.es

When you email, also ask how long it will take for your parcel to get to Santiago. Spanish post is quite slow!

Good luck with your walk!

Hi there,

I did try to look this up online on http://www.correos.es (Spanish Postal Service) and here is what I found:

Post Offices in Santiago

ORFAS, 17 HO
GARCIA PRIETO, 12 HT
(Not sure which one is the one in old-town, but opening hours are almost the same)

Post offices in Leon

JARDIN DE SAN FRANCISCO, S/N HO
ANTONIO NEBRIJA, 15 HT
ORDOÑO III, 4 HT
FRAY LUIS DE LEON, S/N (EL CORTE INGLES) HI

Opening hours:

HO = Work days: 08:30-20:30 Saturdays: 09:30-14:00 Sundays/Holidays: Closed

HT = Work days:08:30-20:30 Saturdays:09:30-13:00 Sunday/holidays: Closed

HI = Work days:10:00-22:00 Saturdays:10:00-22:00 Sunday/holidays: Excepcionalmente

The post office in Santiago has temporarily moved to a new building, but I imagine that the opening hours are the same.

Here is a link to where you can serach for post offices and opening hours:
