From the high point of San Martín the camino goes down but right back up again to follow along the ridge of the hillside. It goes up and down a few times before climbing up to the church at Santiago del Monte.
We had a wonderful stay at Jose’s albergue. He truly loves what he is doing and creates a positive atmosphere for pilgrims. We also had a wonderful communal meal, thanks to an Italian fellow who cooked up a big lentil stew and we all pitched in on the rest. A wonderful Camino experience.
Stay here if possible! It’s like being at home. Full spacious kitchen. Lounge area with games and books and blankets. Very comfortable place to rest. If possible pick up supplies in Salinas.
Vistas are fabulous low key vibe. clean and simple. Love the fact it is connected to the church.
