Hinweis

CAUTION - When leaving Carrión de los Condes it is extremely important to stock up on water. 17km separate it from Calzadilla de la Cueza, with little protection from the sun or wind. In recent years, a roadside kiosk has sprung up at the halfway point, but there are no guarantees that it will be open. 

Feiertage

In most parts of the Catholic world San Zoilo is celebrated on the 27th of June but not in Carrión where he is the Patron Saint. Instead it is a movable feast celebrated in August;  specifically on the Monday following the second to last weekend of the month. The celebration for that day starts 5 days earlier, on Friday and it continues into Tuesday.

Nuestra Señora de Belén is celebrated on the 8th of September.

Thursdays are market days.

Geschichte

Carrión de los Condes has a rich and prosperous, to say nothing of colorful, history. Located at the intersection of the Pilgrimage road and the río Carrión it attracted merchants and a sizable population. Charlemagne is reported to have used the fields along the river as an encampment on his quest to control the pilgrimage route. Over a dozen pilgrim hospices once called Carrión home, and to this day you will find that many of the albergues are under the care of one religious order or another, the nuns of Santa María are known to sing to pilgrims.

There are now 2 places to have a bocadilio ore coffee, 500 meters between. 1 place looks most hygienic.

Restaurant Naturale has the best food for an amazing price! Not to be missed!!

michael

Really great pilgrim store here- they have everything! If you’re in need of something, try to make it to Carrion for the good prices and the good supply of items.

michael

Open and doing good business when I passed it this morning.

Okay stay at Santa Maria - the nuns were there and did sing. Friends reported the communal dinner was v nice. Dorms stuffy and minimal plug points. Bathrooms okay but not many showers for the number of pilgrims. Nice town to explore - great hamburgers at La Cerve for a bargain €3.50.

If you need a change of pace for food, try El Italiano/Cafetería Carríon. The owner is Italian and it was some of the best food I’ve had on the CF. Lots of pizza options and very delicious!

michael

I was surprised how much life was here! Lots of cafes and stores. Would make a good stop

michael

Food sub par. Waiter, a twenty something year old prick that didn’t want to be bothered by us, basically throwing plates and silverware on table and arguing with us about his service.

Today I came across two kiosks on the trail from Carrion to Calzadilla. The first at 7.3 km and the second at 12.0 km. I didn’t stop but it looked like both had drinks and food items.
