Located on the bank of the río Nisón, Pola de Allende has never been a town that was easy to get to; in fact the three hospitals for pilgrims were built high up on the mountain pass precisely because it was easier to go up than down. The Hotel and Restaurant ‘La Nueva Allandesa’ routinely receives praise from pilgrims for the kind service and healthy portions of Asturian home cooked meals.

The Road

The camino leaves Pola along the road and passes the village of El Mazo.

Comments

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

If you’re staying at any of the places on the main road Galicia, you may need earplugs. The night I stayed at Hotel Lozano the street/bar noise went on until 3am. The hotel is okay. Small rooms but comfortable. The food in their restaurant was very good. Obviously not the standard of La Nueva Allandesa but very good nevertheless. Staff were friendly and helpful. Not a bad choice if you need a private room.
