Good morning,

after a mail of Laurie regarding Pension Paris' closing, the Associación de Amigos del Camino de Santiago de la Comunidad Valencia established contact with the following accomodation in Valencia to give customized service:

CENTER VALENCIA YOUTH HOSTEL
Calle Samaniego, 18
ES-46003 Valencia
www.center-valencia.com
Telephon: 00 34 963 914 915

Pilgrims who book at this albergue and need guide and/or credencial, can send us (info@vieiragrino.com) mail some days before arriving requesting them, and we shall carry them to the albergue.

Buen camino
Jean-Luc

Great news, Jean-Luc.

You and your association have been extremely helpful and friendly, hoping to meet you in person on a return trip to the Levante.

I've made this a "sticky" post, so that it will be at the top for new Levante pilgrims. Many thanks for your help.

Ahhh, that's a shame. For the future pilgrims I hope you'll find another location. As I've already wrote in another thread Levante deserves some promotion.

Thanks for doing all this, Jean-Luc!

I recommend the Pension Alicante. It is near the train station and kind of near Amigos de Levante office, and in the central part of town. Rooms between 20 and 25€. Great value (excellent reviews too)!

I have stayed here multiple times, recently having returned to Valencia.
You need to book ahead to make sure there is a room but no credit card needed. Contact Info:

On septembre the 1st, The Amigos in Valencia switched to winter timetable:
the office is open on Wednesday 10AM-13:30AM and Friday 5PM-8:30PM.

As far as we can know, two French men started Levante yesterday, and a man from Scotland and a lady from Denmark started last Saturday. Also a Spanish man will start soon, but will switch to Camino de la Lana (Wool Way) after Almansa.
Buen Camino a todos

Hola, Jean-Luc,

Thanks for the info. And I bet we are all completely OK with using original Spanish names for Caminos: Wool Way = Ruta de la Lana ;)

Hi pilgrims, here is new info.
As from October the 1st, our Asociación moves to a new office: Calle Jerónimo Muñoz, 32.
It is still next to the way, but 5 mn farer from the center of the city. 21617880_1589711734413561_4731063366861393259_n.jpg Nueva sede 3.jpg

On the other hand we received pilgrims starting the Camino de Levante this week: 2 young German ladies, and a couple from Poland.

Buen Camino
Jean-Luc

Post data of Saturday: two more visits at the office yesterday: a man from Oregon, USA, starting today, and a man from Valencia-city starting from home his first Camino (refresh to my mind my same experience three years ago)

Hi Madens
Yes we have.
you can pick it at the Asociación, or send an E-mail at info@vieiriagrino.com for a postal dispatch.
I attach files (built for my own use) with distancies and accommodations.

Wow, those are great resources. JLWV, would you mind if we posted these documents in the Resources section?

And one more question Jean Luc-- has the more recent version of the Association's guide been translated into English? I remember that a year or so ago, the English version was still a translation of the older guide. Many thanks! Buen camino, Laurie

In Valencia now. I found pod bunks with light, charge point and large lockable drawer underneath, at "The River Hostel". €10 makes it a deal.

Excellent location! I walked past it on my first day on Levante because I started IN the Mediterranean sea and walked through that free parking zone, crossing the old river bed (now recreational area) and past the hostel on the way to cathedral.
Good to know. Thanks for posting.

Ant, see you on 13th
Gerard, welcome in Valencia and thank you for your info; I have updated the list with it.
K1, fine to read your comments
Laurie, sorry for all members, but by the moment a translation of the last guide is no foreseen. The idea has been launched, but there is no immediate means to realize it.
