To end of camino

The camino delivers you directly to the front door of the Monasterio de Armenteira and to the two bars in town. Directly in front of you is the more popular of the two. The albergue is set off from town by a few hundred meters, follow the camino arrows and they will lead you to the albergue.

The Road

From Armenteira the camino joins a popular (among locals) trail known as the Ruta de la Piedra y del Agua. It follows along a creek, with trails on both sides, as it descends to sea level. Along the way, it passes several dozen abandoned water mills. Note that although you can safely and easily follow both sides of the river, it is the right-hand side that keeps you closer to the mills and the water.

The Monastery is understandably very popular, so ensure you pre-book. I couldn’t get a response by phone, but did by email.


If you love waterfalls and every shade of green… We are going to love the next 3 1/2 miles. Get your camera ready.


I waited until 4:30 pm when the monastery office opened to try to get a room and they said no pilgrims. I had waited there for hours and after being turned away the albergue was full. All 35 beds were taken. I paid €4 to sleep on a mattress on the floor next to the bar. Do not wait on the monastery for a bed.


Email the hospedaria in advance to check on availability - it's well worthy the effort.
