Guillena is a modest-sized town, on maps for as long as maps have been made. Most services, and the private albergue, are located along the main road. The municipal albergue is next to the municipal swimming pools.

Attenzione

The private albergue Luz del Camino is on the main road about 50m past the turn mentioned below.

Il cammino

At the start of town laminated signs take you off of the main road. The Camino follows the Calle Real past the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Granada and eventually to the municipal albergue. If you miss those signs, or if you prefer to stay at the private albergue located on the main road, skip that turn. There are more arrows further up the road which will bring you to the municipal albergue.

Both the camino and the road will eventually cross the Río Huelva at which point the camino follows beside the road all the way to the first roundabout. Here, turn left towards the gas station to cross through a small industrial park. The camino returns to the groves for a quiet walk through the countryside.

Shortly before Castilblanco de los Arroyos the camino rejoins the main road. At the entrance to Castilblanco there are two options. To the right the camino follows the main road through town, passing a gas station, the municipal albergue, and several restaurants before leaving town along the road. To the left the camino goes through town along cobbled lanes, passing several bars and the church before rejoining the road out of town.

Six bed room but am the only one so far. Nice kitchen facilities with free tea and coffee, muffin and juice. Nice roof top area for hand wash laundry and drying. Nice hot shower. A happy welcome for a pilgrim. A mini market just 10m away across the road. About 100-150m away from restaurant serving del dia menu for €8.

If you arrive early in the afternoon, most of the town will be closed for siesta. Perhaps you want something to eat or a cold drink. Near the north end of town, along the main road that you walked in on is Hostal. At Frances which stays open and may have food available. A few hundred meters further, on the opposite side of the road, is a fully stocked (and air conditioned) grocery store where you can purchase supplies for the next day’s lunch or for a quick snack before dinner.
