Notice

CAUTION - When leaving Carrión de los Condes it is extremely important to stock up on water. 17km separate it from Calzadilla de la Cueza, with little protection from the sun or wind. In recent years, a roadside kiosk has sprung up at the halfway point, but there are no guarantees that it will be open. 

Fiesta

In most parts of the Catholic world San Zoilo is celebrated on the 27th of June but not in Carrión where he is the Patron Saint. Instead it is a movable feast celebrated in August;  specifically on the Monday following the second to last weekend of the month. The celebration for that day starts 5 days earlier, on Friday and it continues into Tuesday.

Nuestra Señora de Belén is celebrated on the 8th of September.

Thursdays are market days.

History

Carrión de los Condes has a rich and prosperous, to say nothing of colorful, history. Located at the intersection of the Pilgrimage road and the río Carrión it attracted merchants and a sizable population. Charlemagne is reported to have used the fields along the river as an encampment on his quest to control the pilgrimage route. Over a dozen pilgrim hospices once called Carrión home, and to this day you will find that many of the albergues are under the care of one religious order or another, the nuns of Santa María are known to sing to pilgrims.

Horribly rude waiter.

The description isn't saying anything about the superb portals of the Santa María and Santiago churches, nor about the Convent of Santo Zoilo and of Santa Clara.
Also, very nice riverside at El Plantío.

There was a lovely food truck with fresh orange juice, great coffee and many food options about 7k from Carrion de los Condes this morning. They said they will be there until end October unless it gets too cold

DO IT! Stay here it’s great :) song and sharing time at 6 followed by mass a a pilgrim blessing. Great experience and a good way to connect with fellow pilgrims. Some tips — there is a full service kitchen, secret showers behind the doors for both men and women, and more plugs by the benches downstairs. burn camino :)

A special stay here. The nuns and volunteers make you feel so welcome. We sang together at 6pm, then mass, followed by a very special pilgrims blessing (all optional!). Good supermarkets in town and kitchen facilities for cooking at the albergue. Otherwise, restaurants and bars to eat in.

There is a new hostal called Comfort Suites. It is fantastic. The rooms are large and thoughtfully designed. Large tv with Netflix and a fridge. Best of all is the American style AC - perfect for beating a heat wave. Wonderful!
