Viloria de Rioja

Camino Gazetteer
.....Camino 6-2010:October 25, 2010



October 25, 2010

At Viloria de Rioja just east of Belorado Acacio and Orietta have a wonderful refuge for pilgrims. On my 2009 Camino I stopped for a hot tea en route for Belorado. They were so gracious that I vowed to return and spent the night; Monday I did.

They have created a comfortable oasis from abandoned animal sheds; there are 10 comfy bunks in a dorm heated by a wood burning stove and great showers that water you and not the ceiling, walls or your clothes. Wifi is available as is a multilingual library specializing in books by Paulo Coelho.

But best of all are the wonderful conversations with this Brazilian/Italian couple; I wish them every continued success and hope to return again next year!
