I will be starting my Camino from Sarria in less than 45 days. My first Camino ever and a huge step for me to do solo. I‘m looking forward to meeting new friends on this journey. This forum has been a huge inspiration for me to just do it.

I know I can get my first passport stamp (sello) from my albergue in Sarria.

I am wondering if anyone knows of a place in Sarria, Pilgrim office and/or church etc., that would be special to have as my first one. I’m a history nerd so oldest church, oldest bar/ cafe is the stuff I love. I want the first stamp to hold a special memory for me as I walk the Camino that so many have walked before me.

Thank you.

Frances, autumn/winter; 2004, 2005-2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
The address in Sarria of the church of Santa Maria is rúa Maior, 65. The church is usually open late in the afternoon.

I often stayed nearby at the private albergue O Durminento, rua Maior 44.They offered a very tasty communal meal, the beds/bunks were comfy, and reservations accepted. Some private rooms are available.

Nearby the shop Peregrinlteca, rua Benigno Quiroga 16, is a handy place to replace gear.

Buen camino!

Just for fun my friend & I asked the passport control officer at the Madrid airport to give us our first stamp last month. He was happy to do so & you could tell they rarely (if ever) get asked to do that. His colleague bragged that he was originally from Leon & was tickled to here we were starting in Ponferrada. Not exactly the answer you were looking for, but a neat story. Buen Camino!!
