But here are a few notes.
Two of my favorite places in Pedrouzo are Pension Maribel and Pension Arco.
They both are on a side street of Pedrouzo, and there are two ways to get there.
One is via the regular Camino. One is a shortcut through shaded forest. Google Maps will show you both routes.
|Pension Arca is right next door to Pension Maribel. Both are lovely.|
|Pension Arca has a nice back yard where you can hang out and rest.|
|The obligatory pilgrim clothes waashing basin|
|Pension Maribel is my FIRST choice because Pension Arca uses fragrance, which hurts my head.|
|You will find these clothes drying racks all long the Camino. Bring safety pins instead of clothespins so your clothes don't blow off (or walk away).|
|The black road is the regular Camino. You can take the yellow shortcut to Maribel.|
Both Maribel and Arco will take reservations.
Tomorrow you will arrive in Santiago. If you leave by 8 am, you should be walking into the city by noon.
My advice regarding getting your Compostela? Check the pilgrim office on your way into town. If there is a long long line, find out what time they open in the morning and get in line 1/2 hour earlier the next morning. Today, go rest, have a drink, and enjoy Santiago!
