Does anyone remember where the bar is, and its name, on the Via de la Plata, that has shells all over its walls that people put their names on?

Hi Lillian

In a little village called Alberguería there is bar called El Rincon de Peregrinos where the dueno gives you a shell to write your name on then he nails it to the shell covered ceiling!

He also has some provision, a sello and badges. All good!

You must be making good progress!

Hasta Santiago

Many, various, and continuing.
As i recall the climb up to Albergeria is a killer, which makes that bar all the more welcome! (they had signs posted a couple of years ago: "Bar 1500 meters," "Bar 500 meters," etc. But the bar is still at least a kilometer away, straight UP! The signs are meant to encourage you, but they LIE) Have a cerveza for me!
Ultreya!

The bar is basic, no expresso machine but the Galician white wine is great. A definite place to stop. Here's Luis and a new welcome sign I did for him in Chinese (bottom). I think he is going to run out of space to hang the shells pretty soon.

Yes - Luis is a very nice human-being; also he makes a good 'cafe solo' (actually I had 2 when I was there on 16 Oct 06) plays Mozart as back-ground music and had a lovely little fire going which I sat before and tried to dry my clothes a bit, while savouring my coffees; the road up from Laza is steep, long and -on that day- wet & windy.

buen camino
