The FEVE train station, church, and albergue are all located in curve in road.

Notice

Once upon a time the camino between Boo and Mogro required pilgrims to cross the river along the very narrow FEVE railway bridge. This is now prohibited and enforced by the locals and the police. It is dangerous and very much to be avoided. This leaves pilgrims with two options:

1. Hop on the train at Boo for a two minute journey across the bridge the legit way.
2. Follow the arrows south to cross the river at Arce and then turn back north to Mogro, a well marked journey of 9.4km.

Fiesta

San José Obrero is celebrated on the 19th of March and San Juan Bautista on the 24th of June.

History

Although the town of Boo is new the camino has always passed through this point. Modern travelers have the luxury of a quick train across the Río Pas but ancient pilgrims relied on the Barco de Mogro (the boat of Mogro) to get across; a service which was free to pilgrims.

The Road

Once in Boo it is possible to cross the train tracks at the platforms, though do exercise caution. This is the shortest path to the Albergue Piedad. The arrows will otherwise take you around town (it is a small town) on the main road and over the railway.

The albergue jn Boo is really nice, there is a good amount of space to relax, everything is clean and the 11€ dinner was delicious. We called and booked the beds the night before.

Deze herberg is voor mij tot hieruit de allermooiste. De hartelijke en creatieve uitbaatsters maakten alle lakens, dekbedovertrekken, gordijnen, zetelovertrekken, tapijten,. Zelf en met prachtige combinaties!
Ze zorgen voor vele verrassende elementen (oud kastje blijkt bedopslag / een oude valies is omgebouwd tot tafel.
Dit interieur heeft een Ziel! De menu del dia was zeer lekker. Ook al ligt het in een bocht van een nogal bereden weg en aan een klein station, de kamers hebben rolluik en de ramen kunnen dicht.
Keuken, tuintje en terras.
Handdoeken, lekkere zeep,. Ik voelde me hier zeer welkom! Dankjewel,
Lieve (België)
