La Robla is the first developed city outside of León. In addition to an albergue, there are also hostals and pensions. Avoid those at the entrance to town just over the foot bridge, and continue into the center. There is also a tourist information office near the ayuntamiento if you need a stamp or a glossy brochure. The albergue is at the far end of town. Hostal Ordóñez de Celis, on your right before the ayuntamiento, is recommended.

Notice

Between La Robla and Buiza the Camino San Salvador coexists with the Camino Olvidado but they go in opposite directions. It’s not hard to keep them apart but if you get disoriented easily check your map from time to time. 

The Road

The camino from La Robla, at least once you get to the end of town, is along a pleasant path adjacent to the river. It passes a restored aqueduct.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

The Municipal Alburgue is still closed. A previous note said permanently but the sign on the albergue (06/05/2022) indicates until further notice. I don’t trust my Spanish so neither should you.

A town resident walked me all the way to Pension Mundo and explained to the bar staff my need. She set me up for the night and called ahead for dinner in Poladura for the next night. Room was just alright (20 euros) but the town people and bar staff were great.

Arrived in La Robla on 31 May 2022 and Municipal Albergue is closed. Notice states it is closed permanently. Got a double room in Ordonez for €30, bit dated but clean.
