This is a modern businessmen hotel with all the comforts and amenities that the traveler needs, a very efficient and competent hotel with a nice restaurant, good food, well served and presented.Excellent breakfast table at what seems to be the standard price for buffet breakfast €12-15. I only have a comment being that I was on a pilgrimage to Santiago, the hotel is a little away from the CAmino, about a 20-30 minutes walk from the Templars Castle and pilgrims albergue. This is not a problem and gives the visitor a chance to walk through a modern vibrant city in Northern Spain.

... at 8:15 from El Acebo. The Camino continued on main street through the end of town, and much to our surprise, it continued on the road or on a narrow path beside the road.

And to boot, the morning was cool, sun hidden mostly behind heavy clouds and no wind (all the windmills on the surrounding mountains were still). We continued along the road for about 2 miles passing through the village of Riego de ...
... one my mom wore when I was a little girl.
One of our goals for the day was to visit the 13th century church Santuario de las Angustias in Cacabelos. We have read in our trustworthy guidebook that there is a retablo that features a young Jesus playing cards with San Antonio de Padua. Yes, you read that correctly. Jesus was a card playing boy. We all but broke down the locked doors of the church trying to see this slightly unbelievable thing. We ...
... correct path? We navigated steep long shale rocks on a narrow path down into the woods. This looked like a river may rage through it at any moment. "Yes, this is the way we went last time," said Oma and Opa, "IN THE DARK!" Why in the world would anyone even begin to think to do this in the dark??? "Because we were awake," they said. I beg to differ. They must have been sleep walking! The downhill path today was ridiculously fun and interesting, if you were ...
... left her with an abundance of spiritual wealth and the region is generally at peace with itself and its traditions largely intact. While a strong Catholic faith overlays its earthy spirituality, its pagan past never totally faded. Deep respect, even veneration of the natural elements remains as evident as the elements themselves.
We found O'Cebreiro to be a ...
