It is obligatory to register your arrival in Galicia if you are not a Galician resident and if you have recently been in a high risk area. Tap here for the details.

I have been reliable informed tha the Xunta Albergues on the Camino Sanabrés are all open again with 50% capacity. They have abandoned the reservations system they were using in 2020 and have reverted to the old system of no reservations.

In 2020 I published a new set of apps for the Camino with all the information from the printed book plus interactive, zoomable maps. They're available for Android and iPhone (Click here)
