The Camino can be more than just a walk. It can truly be a pilgrimage of the heart and soul.
The Pilgrim House Welcome Center is a place for pilgrims to find respite from their walk and take time to reflect. Reflect on their Camino, reflect on their life, reflect on what may lie ahead. We offer a safe place to explore and engage the deeper questions concerning the love and mystery of God, life, and our resilient frailty. This time of reflection is sacred and the Welcome Center’s purpose is to foster space (physical, mental, and spiritual) for this time.
Being pilgrims ourselves, we know sometimes we need a place in tune with the Camino spirit; a place where others, too, are exploring and wrestling with their thoughts and emotions.
If you are seeking, searching, or just needing a moment of respite, you are welcome here. Let us offer you a cup of coffee and a listening ear, or maybe just laundry and quiet place to be alone. Whatever your needs, our doors are open.
About Pilgrim House
The Pilgrim House Welcome Center was borne out of a desire to offer a place for the wandering heart and searching soul.
It is a simple fact that one’s life and soul require attention, attention that is oftentimes lacking. And because of this, the Camino frequently happens to be so much more than a simple walk through Spain. The extended time away from routines and distractions allows the “stuff” of life to finally get our attention. And all of this “stuff” necessitates time and space to sort out. It is exactly this “time and space” that we offer here at Rua Nova 19. The Welcome Center is not only a place for weary pilgrims to find respite from their travels, but more importantly, a place to find the space needed to sit with whatever is stirring in their hearts.
THE GOOD. THE PRACTICAL. THE FUN.
This is where we share stuff that we think is useful for planning your Camino.
The Camino can be an amazing (dare we even say life changing) experience and we want to help you make the most of it. This page is just the beginning and we will continue to add to this list as we can.
We are Here because of your Generous Support
