Accomodations

We anticipate a large group of over 100 pilgrims for the International Pro-Life Pilgrimage.  While everyone will stay in the same town each night, each individual or smaller group must make its own sleeping arrangements.  All pilgrims should bring a sleeping bag and expect to camp out at least a few nights as the hostels will not likely be able to put up all the pilgrims each night.  For more information on hostels, see below.

The following excerpts are taken from the popular website http://www.caminosantiagodecompostela.com

The facilities along the most popular route of El Camino de Santiago, also called El Camino Frances, are very good. You will find one pilgrims’ hostel or albergue (as they are called in Spanish) in nearly every village you walk through. Some of them are very small, just for 8 or 10 people, and others are very big, for 100 or even 200 people. Their size usually depends on the importance of the village. Besides, in many of the albergues, especially in the bigger ones, you can get your Pilgrims credential or Credencial del Peregrino if you have finished your old one or you just arrived in El Camino de Santiago.

They are usually modest but clean and with hospitaleros (the Spanish word for the hostel staff) sometimes doing voluntary work always willing to help you or to talk or eat with you. Their price varies between 5 and 10 euros and some of them don’t have a fixed price but they only ask a donation or contribution.

As I have already said the facilities for the pilgrims are enough and of good quality along all el Camino de Santiago but they are especially good in the last part within the region of Galicia where the regional government operates them.
