Arzua

The Los Caminantes folks at Ribadiso have opened a new albergue in the center of Arzua just past the Ayuntamiento. It is 12 Euro per night, and has about 35 beds. It is convenient to the downtown area and a quick exit in the morning. It is in this building, which is still a store on Street View.

After O Pino, a new hotel has been built. Lots of pilgrims stop at its bar, which is just after the pedestrian underpass going up to the airport in Lavacolla. The price is about 40 Euro for a single or double, but it is a clean, modern accommodation with WiFi. In the morning, you will only have about three hours into the cathedral. The Street View is pre-construction, but you will get an icon that will tell you about the hotel.

No problem! I put the town in the "Subject:" to make the information more accessible to those who view only the headings, and was referring to the place mentioned in the heading, Arzua. I edited the text to make my English-as-a-first-language clearer...
