This hostel was one of the first to be opened on the Via de la Plata for pilgrims. It is located in a former Franciscan convent in the city center. The building dates back several centuries, renovated by the government of Extremadura; the inside retains a beautiful cloister belonging to the former convent where you can enjoy a haven of peace.
NOTE: This albergue has a habit of closing without announcing to pilgrims, take care around holidays and call ahead or expect rather to stay at the Van Gogh albergue at the entrance to Zafra.
These distances are exact, but are based on a straight line from point to point. Actual walking distances will be slightly longer.
Albergue now run as private one and couple who runs it provide also pilgrim menu and breakfast and can do your laundry too. Nice and roomy, in old building. And only for 12€!
If you stay there, don’t miss the small churreria (churros stand) run by Julia about 100 m from albergue right on Camino, open from 8 am and really the best churros one can eat, all home-made! Good energetic food before a new day’s walk!
