Rosy and Fasgar in the News

I saw this on the Olvidado Association’s facebook page and thought some forum members would want to see it. It’s a little news report about how Rosy and her husband Santi, along with daughter Candela, moved to Fasgar and made a new life. They are now running a restaurant, with a couple of apartamentos turísticos above it. What the clip doesn’t mention is the albergue, which Rosy also takes excellent care of. (And a heads up — the first part talks about another resident, who returned to Fasgar to take charge of water and electricity— the smallest systems in Spain, apparently).


With the opening of a great albergue in Vegarienza, many pilgrims now walk from Vegarienza through Fasgar to Igüeña (total of about 35 or 36), which means not staying in Fasgar. Rosy told me this summer that she sees lots of pilgrims walking through in mid to late morning. True, Fasgar is only 17 or 18 beyond Vegarienza, but it is a great stop. It is a beautiful little mountain town, now has a bar open every day, restaurant open every day in summer. And the walk over the mountains through the Campo de Santiago (site of a big Reconquista battle with lots of Santiago lore) is a show stopper.

I would definitely recommend a stop in Fasgar!

Buen camino, Laurie

So Fasgar will be for me when/if I manage to walk part of the Olvidado in 2021. Thank you Laurie for the info!
