"Albergue Las Herrerias"

We are a couple living in the north-west of Spain, near Galicia, along Saint James Way (a world-famous, 750-kilometre pilgrimage route also known as the Camino de Santiago). We live in a pretty valley with a small river passing through. Our town has 20 inhabitants but is full of pilgrims and tourists during the summer months. It's quite an alternative and interesting area. Our hostel is small, clean and rustic, with bunk beds, a garden with hammocks and fountain, a large living space and a big vegetable garden near the river. It's a paradise! We love nature and animals so we follow natural principles in all we do, striving to contribute to a clean and sustainable environment. we are vegetarian so we serve vegetarian food at home mostly from our garden.

We are a very easy going couple and we are used to be around volunteers or friends at home We are looking for someone with initiative, motivated and responsible who enjoys learning and meeting people. Volunteers should be sociable and flexible.

Las Herrerias is an amazing place! I am grateful to have spent a month there learning so much with great people every day. And if you want to learn Spanish, it’s the best place to go. After a month volunteering, I was surprised that could already communicate well in Spanish, as everyone there encourages you to speak in the local language. :) Surrounded by green, you can even ride the horses when you want to feel the amazing nature while greeting the pilgrims and feeling the magic energy of the Camino. Thank you Miriam, Danilo and Victor for such an awesome opportunity I will never forget. ❤

Angélica was a very happy and lay back volunteer. She always wanted to help and she was always ready for a chat. We went out with her a few times and she was always fun to have her in the group .Easy to have her around. Thanks for coming and sharing with us your time.
All the best and love.

Renan was an amazing volunteer! At first I doubted to accept him because he was young and he had any rewiews but he wanted to come so bad that I accepted him. He is a very hard worker and motived boy, always happy and smiling a lot. I highly recommend him.
He stayed around 3 months with us and we will not forget him. All the best for you.
You have a family here.

Quedan cortas las palabras par describir lo bien que la pasas aquí. Las herrerías es un lugar por el que vale la pena parar, respirar y valorar. Paisajes y personas que te abrazan y reconstruyen tu interior.
