CASTRILLO IS ON AN ALTERNATIVE SHORT I KM CAMINO ROUTE
It is well worth the small detour because it was on the medieval Camino and is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. The scenic path is very well marked on the way out of Castrillo but you need to take care coming in from Murias de Rechivaldo. Follow the instructions below
Just before leaving Murias de Rechivaldo by the Camino, turn right on Calle Nueva towards Murias Albergue municipal. At the Albergue cross the main road and turn left past Casa Flor on to the main road. After 200 m take the path on the right, that runs parallel with the road to avoid road walking. Castrillo straight ahead. Keys and reception for the albergue are at Flores Del Camino - on the main street Calle Real 36.
