Sleeping bag or liner?

I'm going to walk for a few days in July - starting from Astorga and seeing how far I get. Last time I walked in September, I used a fleece sleeping bag liner and that worked quite well. Do you think it will be warm enough or should I take a sleeping bag as it will be more mountainous? Thank you!

I use a silk liner and a tiny down blanket to tuck inside when it's cold. I have found that I needed the down blanket in O Cebreiro in August, among other places in the summer. I know that many/most albergues have blankets, but I don't want to rely on finding one, and many that I've seen I wouldn't want to touch.

In a word, "yes," too warm/hot for a bag in July. Besides, alburges, et al, have blankets if you need one.

What Delphinoula said!!!
I used my sarong for these things PLUS as a bunk curtain, fashionable head wrap, halter top and medical knee wrap!
