Please note - Albergue San Martín did not open in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We are constantly monitoring the situation and hope to be back at some point in 2021!

On the Camino del Norte, in the remote Galician village of Miraz is our second pilgrim hostel – Albergue San Martín.  Established in 2005 and later expanded in 2010, San Martín offers traditional pilgrim hospitality in the form of welcome, a bed and breakfast in the tranquil surroundings of the green countryside between the towns of Baamonde and Sobrado, a few days short of Santiago. We also have a beautiful kitchen where pilgrims can make meals together, using food from one of the local grocers. 

Want to stay with us?

  • We have 26 beds, given on a first-come-first-served basis (in the traditional spirit of the camino, we do not take reservations), as well as a fully-equipped kitchen and garden area
  • We offer a simple breakfast
  • We are only able to take pilgrims who have walked, cycled or ridden on horseback
  • We are donativo – meaning pilgrims that stay with us make a donation towards the upkeep of the albergue
  • We open around 14:30 (may vary depending on weather)
  • Disabled pilgrims can ring ahead for advice on facilities
  • We are always looking for hospitaleros (hostel wardens) to staff San Martín. These consist of volunteers who are either members of the CSJ or other equivalent associations around the world.  Typically, they stay for 2 weeks in a team of 2-4 hospitaleros depending on experience.
  • Applicants should have done a camino previously and have an adequate command of Spanish (other languages also helpful).
