for pilgrims

Pilgrims can either stay in a private ensuite room at Flores del Camino or, alternatively at the village albergue which we also look after. Email us to book private accommodation.


The  cosy  village  albergue  is made  up  of  a  dormitory  of  8  beds  @ 5 €  with  a  pilgrim  credencial. There  is  a  small  kitchen  but  no  shop  in  our  small  village. The  kitchen  is  stocked  up  with  basic  food  supplies  to  make  a  meal.  We  offer  a  healthy  and  nourishing  communal  evening  meal / breakfast  by  donation  for  all  pilgrims.  Meals  are  usually  served  at  Flores  del  Camino  and  we  sometimes  offer  an  intention  fire  ritual. 


For those needing a moment of reflection at this point in their journey we sometimes offer  day  retreats. Please  email  us  in  advance, or  ask  about  availability  when  you arrive.



Please note that though Castrillo was on the original medieval Camino, today it is on an alternative 1km Camino route. 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  to  avoid  road  walking.  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.
