New Albergues and Hotels 2018 on the Camino

El Encanto

El Rincón de Pin

Via Avis

Though its is ancient, the camino is not static. The continuing increase in pilgrims means new lodgings appear every year. Here are six new establishments looking to give you comfort at the end of a long day’s walk. In Villares de Órbigo, a new albergue has received many positive reviews. Albergue El Encanto is the vision of it’s owner Marta. The next lodging is in Santa Catalina de Somoza. Lying in the heart of the Margatería, past Astorga, and heading toward Foncebadón, this Hotel Rural has been beautifully restored by owners Daina and Carlos with breathtaking views of the mountains of León. A small piece of luxury on the camino. In Ruitelán, a former albergue has been given new life and renovations by it new owner, Pin. Look for El rincón de Pin where you will be most heartily welcomed. Just past Astorga, in the beautiful stone village of Castrillo de los Polvazares, a small hotel cum artist’s retreat has opened it’s doors. Called Flores Del Camino, it is the inspired vision of Basia and Bertrand Goodwin. The owners of Meson O Tapas on Rúa Maior in Sarria have added badly needed rooms with their new lodging, Hotel Novoa. Finally, in Melide, on the busy Sarria to Santiago stretch, a newly built albergue, O Candil, has arisen on the Rúa Principal. All this growth signifies that the Camino remains an adventure many want to undertake. And a place where are people are willing to invest their time, energy and money to make their camino dreams come alive.
