What to do with your packs while site seeing ?

Hello all,

We plan to spend a day site seeing in Leon, Burgos and Pamplona but not sure what everyone does with their back packs. Is there anywhere to store your packs until the hotel or alberques open for that day?

Thanks,
Stephen

Usually for rest days you will have to book a hotel rather than staying in the albergue on the day you don't walk. Most hotels will let you drop off your luggage earlier than the check in time. Or you could book the same hotel for two nights and just leave your bag in the room.

If you find yourself needing luggage storage, many bus and train station have lockers for a fee. Some museums also offer lockers (I know the Human Evolution Museum in Burgos does).

If you go sight seeing when in an albergue just bring all your valuables with you, passport, credit cards, cash etc with you and just leave the pack on or under your bunk. What you leave will only be clothes and bathroom kit and they should be ok. No one ever interfered with my gear while I was out and I had nothing stolen on the Camino, but still be vigilant.
Buen Camino.

Just for interest, the tourist office at Santo Domingo de la Calzada (where you get your tickets to see the cockerels) has free lockers to stash your pack whilst sightseeing....
