History

In the 13th century the Order of St John operated a hospital for the poor and for pilgrims here. These days the hospitality is provided by Domingo in the modest albergue.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

I dropped in to visit the Albergue Villapanada to see the old hospital and the view was spectacular. If I had known this place existed I would have walked the extra hour from Grado. The kind host gave me water and offered me food even though I wasn’t staying the night. Stock up on supplies before you arrive from Grado as there is a fully equiped kitchen- and always some leftover pasta and rice and some fresh vegetables available. Maybe take some meat to share as a treat. They have alcohol there.
