Time of past OR future Camino
Next couple of weeks i'll be in the Camino. Starting in Zamora or Salamanca.

Some questions if you can help:

Planning to go direct from Granja de Moreruela - Sta Marta de Tera, skiping Tabara. Does anybody did it? Straight forward is around 35km but i wanted to know if it is possible to do it in terms of path.

Any updated info on these albergues? Open/closed, your experience...

Albergue de peregrinos de Santa Marta de Tera
Albergue de peregrinos de Mombuey
Albergue de peregrinos de Requejo
Albergue de peregrinos de A Gudiña
Albergue de peregrinos de Verín

Thank you in advance.

I did last April. I googled the route on googlmap and it look pretty easy.
But I came to a place, where there was a sign that said private. I didn’t dare to walk that way, so I walked straight forward. And that was for me not a good idea. It was very small paths, tracks from traktor. I looked at my phone 100 times to find the right way and I found it so tiresome to find out when I were.
I think you can do it, just skip the way I did.
Otherwise try Wikiloc, I saw some track’s also Zamora to Tamara.
Good luck and buon Camino, B05722935-4DDA-4E4A-8FCE-5A7C379AE00C.jpegA555E300-E9CE-4DD1-BE76-830266C313BB.jpeg
We did it in Feb 2019 and used the Trail Smart app and the Dutch fraternity map downloaded to (I understand many are now choosing to use Organic maps instead)
We had no problems at all and it was one of our most fabulous walks.
Buen camino.
Firstly, trying to walk a Camino using Google Maps really is not a good idea. Google Maps will try to send you on the shortest route it can figure out from its algorithm without any regard for the route followed by the Camino.

Secondly, what you're proposing is doable, if you're used to those kind of distance then it's shouldn't be an issue. The terrain around there is easy going and mostly flat.

As regards albergues, latest updates here:

Are you sure you want to bypass Tabara? It has one of the best Albergue experiences on the entire camino. Another great Albergue not to be missed on the Sanabres is the wonderful Villar de Farfon.
Thank you all for the replies. Great info.
Depending on the available time (days) i'll try a speedy camino and next year come back with more ease.
