A Balsa



You will notice very quickly, through both smell and sight, that dairy cows are the primary trade. The light brown color gives them their name, the Rubia Gallega; though you will also see an imported imposter, the Dutch Holstein.

The Road

Between here and San Xil you will pass a large fountain with a large scallop shell with a lot of graffiti and algae. Beyond that by two more kilometers is the Alto de Riocabo. You will also pass through San Xil de Carballo, with no services.

Très bel endroit, cool, ressemble à un refuge montagnard ! Délicieux repas végétarien.
Je recommande hautement ce gîte.

Camino de Sant…

I stayed here in October. Family-run, home-cooked meal and breakfast options. Pleasant atmosphere creating good camaraderie among the pilgrims.

I have the pleasure of staying at this Albergue.

Accommodation was excellent the room was clean the shower I had plenty of hot water for all the pilgrims that stayed for the night.

The new management made us all feel welcome and didn’t rush just to either register and pay for our night is accommodation dinner and breakfast.

As always there was plenty of nature to sit at and appreciate under the old trees, in the Hammick‘s and also just being able to relax outside of the normal rat race of the general Camino.

Having stayed here now several times I would recommend it to anybody.

While the food is vegetarian it is plentiful tasteful well presented and totally enjoyable.

The beds were comfortable and due to the way the whole facility is put together allowed a good nights rest

Camino de Sant…

excellent place and amazing garden.
