Albergue El Texu

Hi, I’m Kasia. I’m Polish but my heart fully belongs to Camino Primitivo. My love story with the Camino began in 2016 when I walked it for the first time and I just felt that I must come back and run my own albergue. It was like in a fairy tale. People say that walking the Camino can give you a better vision of your own life. For me the Camino became my life. I just had to give it a try. Two years later I came back to Spain and now I’m running Albergue el Texu.
“El texu” in Asturiano means “yew”, it is a typical asturian tree. There used to be a local habit of “throwing a yew”. If a girl liked a boy, she could throw some yew seeds on him to let him know that she was interested in him. Just so you know, this tree grows behind the albergue:) We are located in La Espina, a small village on the second stage on the Camino Primitivo, 8km from Salas and only 1km past Bodenaya. According to me everyone has their own camino story, this albergue is mine and I would love to share it with you. Come, stay and relax.
