If you do Camino De Santiago, especially the French course, I recommend you to get out of the course just a little bit to visit this place. It’s worth to do. You may need a couple of hours in addition to your original plan but...More

This is a nice renovated twee village for pilgrims mainly on their walk. Coming by car you will have to park in the designated place. My only criticism is that I couldn't find a public toilet. There was a number of bars/restaurants you could use...More

We stopped here because of the reviews and to have lunch. Little did we know that the restaurants are closed on Mondays. Pretty but we didn't see another soul in the place.

Awesome mini village where you can eat the famous "Cocido Maragato", a delicious Spanish soup with chickpea, beef, chicken, pork, vegetables, chorizo, etc. There are several restaurants, but we went to Entrepiedras, full recommended.
