Sleeping bag in July

Am confused about whether I will need one - walking from Astorga to S de C from the beginning of July - some posts say it may be cold in the higher bits - will I need a sleeping bag, or just a sheet sleeping bag?

Nights can be vey long if you are kept awake by being cold. I would suggest at least a lightweight sleeping bag. I have a Snugpak which weighs about 900gr which I will be taking for july/aug this year.

First one Frances 1999 (from Burgos), since then...over 100 in Galicia, Portugal, Basque....
I walked in the month of June with a light fleece sleeping bag and it was just fine. You be mostly in Galicia, which has a much more temperate climate than the extreme cold and heat of Castilla.

A sleeping bag, by all means. Nights do get cooler, they're comfortable to sleep on + they may protect you better from poss tiny little animals which may abound on mattresses (actually, I've never seen them, thanks to my sleeping bag). Ah, yes: try to get the smallest, lightest, one, it should fit on the palm of your hand. Buen Camino 8) XM
