  • Descripción


    We run an Albergue for pilgrims that walk to Santiago de Compostela, by the Camino Frances, or the Camino. We live in the beautiful valley of A Balsa, in a natural surrounding, with many people passing our door from all over the world. We can host 16 persons per night, whom we serve a communal dinner and breakfast. We do all this with 100% organically certified and vegan products, while the house is reformed according to green house construction methods.
    It's an idyllic and quiet place, where you can find a rural life, which you can enjoy during your free time. Key words are good will, daily routine, peace and tranquility.
    We are a small group, a family of 2 with a child, that manage the albergue. Normally there are 2 volunteers at the Albergue. There is a small wooden house for the volunteers.
    It's a social place where you share your time with pilgrims.
    Good to know in advance is that we are vegans and only buy organic certified food. No other food is allowed in the Albergue.

    You can experience an organic and vegan lifestyle, and talk about this with the people that you meet in the Albergue. There's much to learn about the pilgrimage, as typically the pilgrims are in a moment of change or reflexion in their lifes and have many fascinating stories to tell.

  • Ayuda


    The volunteers that like to help at our Albergue, normally do this for 1 month.
    The tasks includes attending pilgrims, clean the kitchen and dormitory.
    The Albergue opens at 6 in the morning till 10 at night. The volunteer help is every day the same, the only thing that changes are the people, so liking people and socializing is one of the main activities, a part from the help and responsabilities given.

    The volunteers share a room, normally 2 persons, showers and toilets. We offer you this, meals and drinks.

    Algo más...

    Normally people that enjoy staying with us, don't want to visit tourist sites and prefer to stay at the Albergue to enjoy the peace and walk or read a bit in their free time. They normally enjoy the work and actually don't live it as work but as their daily life. Joys are found in a really basic lifestyle and daily routines.
    There's a bus from Triacastela to Sarria once a day. Triacastela is 2km walking from the Albergue.
    There's possibilities for creative activities like manualities or gardening, but only at the initiative of the volunteer.
