Stopping at a free Aire in the old part of town apparently. It’s packed, supposed to be 10 spaces but you can double that no problems. Services are available at the bottom of the Official Parking Area
Our little parking spot for the weekend. As it says in the guide book ‘Bien situado y con increibles vistas de la muralla’. It has that, will explore inside and outside the walls and see what it is like. The Citadel is well worth the walk. Visit TIO for tickets for the Wall Wall. Parking is behind Civic Hall and Police Station.
No services, so make sure you top up before you arrive.
A delightful free Aire next to a sports complex, almost under a flyover and with a river behind us. We know how to pick quiet little spots for the night. Looks like a bit of site seeing might be in order. No Services but they are available in the Area
Another frustrating day eventually lead us to a quiet Aire in Astorga. We tried 3 others (Toro, couldn’t find it even the locals didn’t know where it was; Valencia de Don Juan was just parking at the side of the road , nice castle though and Leon, we physical couldn’t get into the parking spots, they were for 6m vans and not even I can squeeze 9m into that sort of space. On top of that it has been thick fog for most of the day, very weird.
Yet another cracking free Aire provides by the good people of the town. It is situated at a vast sporting complex with walks and cycle tracks in fact all you could want
Free parking for the night with views of the Atlantic (ish). Services are available and located behind the water plant. Usual commercial outlets are available in town across the bridge.
|Vila de Cruces:
After an eventful day trying to find an Aire and a washing machine in Bertamirins, neither of which appeared to be forthcoming we finally settle on a spot of free camping in the middle of nowhere. We also tried to find somewhere to park in Santiago de Compostela, tried being the operative word.
A spot of urban free camping today. If you like historic fishing villages you will love Navia. Once home to a thriving fishing and whaling community it is now a historical centre. The parking spot is handy got the local Eroski, and the have fuel. Thankfully the rain we have had for the past couple of days has stopped though we encountered snow up in the mountains on the way here so it’s not all sunshine and sangria over here you know. Services are available, it is advised to reverse into bay!
Las Hazas, found this by mistake and boy was it worth the error. A fully serviced very urban site with washing machines, which was the reason I found it last night. The village itself is well worth a wander around as it has some fascinating architecture. So all in all a good find and we would highly recommend it
Well worth the visit, what a fascinating town with a terrible recent history, There are a couple of free camping spots in town both within easy walking distance of the attractions
