Is there a refuge in Bilbao?

by heler

I cannot seem to find any info on it on the internet, yet Bilbao is part of Camino del Norte. I would appreciate any help, as I am flying into Bilbao at 9pm and will need a place to sleep until moving to St.Jean Pied-de-Port. If i find a refuge, I would stay an extra day and see the town too.

thanks

Travel Tips for Santiago de Compostela

Kissing

by Tami_G

In Spain when we meet someone we hardly ever shake hands (unless for maybe a business interview or something serious) we give two kisses. One on each cheek to someone we're introduced to, or a friend, etc.... Women kiss other women and men. Men kiss women but usually shake hands with other men. Although male relatives also give each other two kisses

Cathedral

by gasca

First, admire the cathedral.

When you enter, you have to put the hand in a special hand-shape hole, and your head on Saint James' head.

Then, you must hug and kiss the saint from behind and next see the silver chest where Saint James apostle human remains are supposed to be.

Monestary of San Martino Pinario

by Shabu

The Monestary is of 16th century construction, this is one of the most impressive examples of Barroco Compostelana. It was built over a Romanesque church, which has always been an important medieval religious center.

Cathedral North and Azabacherie facade

by suvanki

This facade is named after the street of jetworkers that passes in front of the Cathedral.

This used to be the end of the road for pilgrims, arriving at the Francigena or Gate of Paradise.

Apparently there was an impressive fountain here, built by Bernard, the cathedral treasurer. Pilgrims would wash in it, before entering the Cathedral, and was described by Picaud - (author of the 1st guide to the Camino de Santiago in the 12th century) as being so magnificent that its like was not to be found in the whole world!
It was reported to be large enough for 15 men to bathe at a time. From the centre rose a bronze column with 4 lions spouting water. Bernard had the cisterns and pipes buried underground to keep the water cool, for the supplying of the Cathedral and Monastery opposite.

The facade was originally built in 1122 . It was demolished in the 17th century.The new facade was built to cover the romanesque facade by Caaveiro and Sarelo in the 18th century, and was completed by Monteagudo.

Over the Azabacherie door is a statue of St James, with Kings Alfonso11 and Ordona11 of Leon praying at his feet.
