Hi all; I've read through related forum posts and scoured the Correos website (e.g. Paq Peregrino) but am hoping someone may have experience with this...
I'll be walking the Camino Mozarabe from Almeria to Cordoba this fall, travelling into and out of Malaga.
Would Correos in Malaga store a small suitcase for me for 3 or 4 weeks while I'm walking?
(This extra bag is needed because later I'm meeting family in a snowy, cold place!)
The Correos Paq Peregrino "tailormade" service states that it will store a suitcase at a chosen post office in Spain.
The online form to sign up for this asks for a Spanish address, which I don't have, so maybe my best option is just to show up at a Correos in Malaga? Or use the address of the Amigos in Almeria (with their permission of course)?
I've also sent this question directly to Correos via their website, and will share whatever response I get.
Thanks in advance for your experience and advice!
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
I would first see if there is a hotel that will provide luggage storage while you are on the Camino.
 
A followup! Today I received a reply to the query I sent to Correos via their website.
My query was very specific, asking if I could store a carry-on sized bag at a Correos office in Malaga while I walked the Camino Mozarabe from Almeria to Cordoba.
Here is the reply:
