The pure magical energy of the Camino is not only from its pilgrims and its history. There are also unique places which keep the spirit alive, put you in another world and reflect the ongoing mystical atmosphere of the Way. We want to highlight some of them to make sure you don't miss them on your Way.
Hospital Del Alma, Castrojeriz
A place of silence and love
One of the best places on the Camino. So relaxing and inspiring. You definitely should stop there and have a look. It gives you time to reflect and meditate. The silence and solitude is a refreshing break from what can be the mayhem of the Camino. It embodies the Camino, giving a glimpse into local architecture and geomorphism.

La Casa del Alquimista
Masterpieces of art in a charming setting
A true spiritual oasis, a magical place full of deep energy and unbelievably stunning art, made by the master Antonio himself. This is not only a mineral art gallery, you can relax and connect, meditate, get massages or practice yoga. To get here just walk about 9-10 km from Triacastela in the direction of San Xil, where you will also pass the fabulous ecological albergue El Beso in A Balsa. Just after the donativo rest stop in Montan, follow the signs. It's absolutely worth the small detour!
