Yes, July and August

Grandas de Salime is the largest town since Salas and offers enough bars and shopping to occupy your afternoon. The Iglesia de San Salvador stands at the center of town. There are several old manor homes scattered through the town, most of them dating from the 18th century. The gem of the town is the highly recommended Museo Etnográfico de Grandas de Salime, which has more objects in its collection than you could possibly lay your eyes on.


Nuestra Señora del Carmen is celebrated on the 2nd and 3rd of July. San Salvador is celebrated during the first weekend in August.

The Road

The camino leaves town along Calle Carmen and passes the Capilla de Carmen before joining the AS-28 highway for several parts; leaving and rejoining between towns on its way up to the alto that marks the border between Asturias and Galicia. There is one more albergue on the Asturian side of the border, in Castro. The first hamlet you come to, that of La Farrapa, has no services for pilgrims.

Camino de Sant…

No one seems to have mentioned A Reigada as a place to eat. I went there for comida (the afternoon main meal) and had their €12 menu del dia. It was delicious, one of the best I've had. And the stuff I saw going to other tables who had made different choices than I had all looked delicious, too. This wasn't your usual thin cutlet and fries fare. Highly recommended.

Please try and find the time to visit the lovely Museum in town, it is €1.50 to visit and shows the historical lifestyle of the local area. Everyone of us that visited really enjoyed it and we all stayed far longer than we thought we would. Charming, informative and a visual feast! The video and exhibits of clog making and bowl carving was super-interesting (yes - really!). Genuinely one of the best museums I’ve been to.

Camino de Sant…

Fabulous wine bar and delicatessen located in the town. We ate a selection of local cheeses and meats, some craft beer and local wines, all delicious and reasonably priced. Cheerful & enthusiastic owner who helped us choose our food (three cheeses, stuffed peppers, smoked beef with pickles and crackers). Beautifully decorated and with great music, the clientele were 50% locals and 50% pilgrims when we were there. Very warm atmosphere. The best.
