The Camino del Norte on its way through Mondoñedo is a perfect place to set a small charming hotel or a hostel. And this house has the ideal conditions to do so. It is located in the historical area of the city, just meters from the cathedral, a reference point for thousands of pilgrims throughout the year, which gives the area a very special atmosphere. It has capacity to accommodate 26 people in different separate rooms of 2/3/4 people, there is not a common bedroom, so frequent in pilgrim hostels of the Northern Camino. The house has a restoration project to preserve as much as possible of the original elements of the house: wood, doors, floors, stairs, etc. Simply considering the necessary improvements in terms of facilities: electricity, water, heating, bathrooms that need improvement … etc. To adapt it to the current regulations and make it as comfortable as possible and also economically profitable.

The exact number of rooms has yet to be determined. Probably 7/8 bedrooms. The property is sold fully furnished as seen in photographs.
The Camino del Norte was the most used in times when the Arab invasion was still important in Spain, before the fifteenth century. Later, from the Renaissance, when the southern territories were pacified, this route gave way to the most comfortable and “modern” French Way that today is the most popular; however, this Northern Route remains the original and – probably – the most beautiful in many respects. Many pilgrims prefer to follow the “authentic” route every year, where the first medieval pilgrims traveled along the North coast, looking for a reference for their faith and the end of the known world. Currently, this route is being promoted by the Administration.
