Cruz de Ferro




El Acebo


In 2022 the last inhabitant of Manjarín closed the doors for good on the modest pilgrim refugio that for decades cared for pilgrims along this very remote pass.  

These days a food truck has parked nearby to serve pilgrims.

The Road

There are a few stretches of road ahead, just before arriving in Acebo, that are rugged and slippery in wet weather.

A lady has done a nice job of setting up an area to eat/rest. Drinks, food ,assorted snacks, reasonable prices. However the village of Manjarin simply does not exist anymore; it looks like a bomb hit the place. Keep going to El Acebo which is beautiful.

Refreshments available
A lovely fire greeted us today. We sat by the fire in a super shelter with lovely views. Drinking hot coffee with pilgrims from around the world.

If you’re used to stopping for some coffee or a stamp, Tomas has closed the refugio for renovations. Next town is Acebo.

The path after Mandarin and all the way into Acebo is rugged, rocky, and very steep. Also leaving Riego de Ambros is even worse. Some people walk on the highway, which is also dangerous.
