- Camino(s) past & future
- Too many and too often!
I am walking the northern end of the VDLP at the moment. In the past few days I have discovered a couple of places where the Gronze website's statement that an albergue is open all year proved untrue. The first was in Montamarta where a notice on the albergue door said closed until spring. Today the municipal albergue in Mombuey was closed - no contact information on the door, no answer at the house named by Gronze as the keyholder. A private albergue close by was also closed but its owner at least tried but failed to contact the municipal hospitalero for me. So I carried on walking to Asturianos - an extra and unwelcome 17km arriving shortly after sunset. For those who are considering a winter walk on the VDLP it may be worthwhile to confirm in advance that your next night's stop is actually available. Online information is clearly not always accurate.
