Today is Monday and I'm taking a day of rest to give my tired feet and knees a rest, and to do the tourist thing for a few hours.
This city reminds me of my Granada and Leon with its older buildings with balconies, wrought iron banisters, narrow streets, but also with a modern side, good department stores, restaurants, a nice riverside …
Day one ride for Mark and Patti was a fabulous day but tough as we headed up the mountain passes near Lugo. Scenery and weather was perfect! Bike ride was great but a challenge for sure. Beer never tasted so good. Second beer was even better. I digress. A little siesta time and than an excellent dinner for 16 at our hotel. Great ...
... ONLY another 11 kilometers for the day. No problem. We finish our refreshments and head out of town. We notice that there are not many other pilgrims walking the same way. We guess many people did not continue after Samos. And we find out why. Hills, hills and more hills. Holy cow, we are getting tired. As Trina says "My dogs are barking!!". Gabe, Trina and Steven all state their feet are hurting. We are teased with a few small villages that are ...
In a room full of boys and four girls, there wasn't a single snorer. Very suspicious... (For the people that were in the other room...)

How has this hotel rated in the past?
This is a basic nice comfortable facility with everything that the casual traveler and pilgrim may need. Caution, somewhat steep for the cash strapped young pilgrim, not so for the more comfortable older pilgrim.
Excellent restaurant, and food, especially the Ensalada Mixta. Fixed priced menu €;12 for three course meal with bread and drink. I'd recommend it highly.
Not on the Camino, but not far from it. About 500 meters from the historic section, a few blocks from the commercial center and river walk area.
