Initially, this hostel was run by the Benedictine nuns who live in the monastery next to the albergue. Before us, the hostel was run by an NGO.
Now, it starts a new stage under new management. We are open from March 15th to November 15th, and the Marist community will welcome the pilgrims that would like to stop in Sahagún.
Marist Fathers are a religious congregation born in France in 1836. We are fathers and brothers whose charism is to be Mary’s presence in the world. We are called to work for the Church by putting into action the style and virtues of Jesus’ mother, that is, through humility, simplicity, compassion, service, prayer and listening to others. This is why we are called the Society of Mary (our official name).
This new project in the St. James’ Way will allow us to offer a warm welcome simply and joyfully to all the pilgrims who are on their way to the tomb of the Apostle. We hope that everyone who comes into our hostel feels as if Mary herself is welcoming you.
If you are doing the Camino and you have questions or you need to talk about what you are living and experiencing, do not hesitate to approach and talk to us, we are here for that.
