Where to leave extra luggage

#1
Hi,

Does anyone have any good ideas on where do you leave their extra luggage while doing the walk. I am doing some travelling after the pilgrimage and was hoping not to back track too much.

Does anyone know a safe way to get luggage to Santiago. There will be a camera etc in the extra luggage so I want it to be as safe as possible.

Any other experiences?

Hi Steve,

Are you going to stay one night in Santiago before heading out? If so, your hotel may be willing to store your bags while you walk.

Alternatively, the post below makes a reference to luggage storage boxes at the train station. I have not been to the train station in a while, but I assume they are still there (if you look the posts below are from last year)

... I hope this helps a bit.

Un saludo,
Ivar

Thanks Ivar for your reply.

I missed mentioning that I was flying to Paris and then starting the Camino from St Jean Pied de Port. Do you know of anyway to send extra bagagge from Paris to Santiago.

Thanks again.
Steve

Hi again,

The post office in Santiago will keep packages for pilgrims. You mail it to your name at the post office in Santiago (include your name and more or less the date that you will be picking it up). In theory you could mail it from any place (even from home I would think). I have not personally tried this, but heard from many in this forum that has done it without any problems.

Do a search in the forum (at the top of this page or from the forum home page) for "poste restante" and you will find information on this.

Here are some links:

I hope this helps,
Ivar
