The ruins of the monastery and pilgrim hospital of San Antón is a delightful space that seems to embrace the camino, its archway spanning the road itself. Once a sprawling complex there is little that remains.

The albergue here has never seen better days, and the efforts of a dedicated team of volunteer hospitaleros keep the place as traditional as can be expected.

The niches in the archway, previously used by monks to deliver food to late arriving pilgrims, are now a popular spot to leave written messages.

Camino de Santi... (not verified) said:

An albergue unlike any other. Nestled in the ruins of a monastery founded in 1146, a small building affords you shelter and simple but perfectly serviceable bunk beds. The sign on the road is modest (‘Refugio’ plus an arrow), but this is well worth your attention. No electricity and no hot water, but so what? Cold showers are fine, especially in summer. This is a sublime, tranquil setting and one conducive to reflection Communal meal and drinks afterwards in a ‘secret’ bar across the road add an extra edge. Do not miss this one!!
