The town is the only one on the whole of the Camino Francés to be named after a female Saint (St. Catherine of Alexandria). A relic of St. Blaise is kept in the parish church, and the town was known to have a pilgrim hospital. The ‘Somoza’ part of the name is a simple description of its geographical position at the foot of the hill. The hill, of course, lies ahead.

We stayed at San Blas and were delighted when the host brought us the most delicious lentils and salad. It was a refreshing change from the carne and bread. The rooms are acceptable, nothing to write home about, but do the job for resting.

Very nice place to stay. The owner speaks English. Couldn’t ask for a nicer or cleaner place to stay. Highly recommend Avis.

I stayed at the new Via Avis for something different. Beautiful but expensive. Dinner at the Albergue Centro was great value for €10.
