Molino de Villacelama (Mill in Villacelama), which is located very close to León, Astorga and Valencia de Don Juan, besides being very close to Santiago’s Trail, is the place where you may be in an ideal atmosphere to practise adventure sports, visit monumental towns, find unique spots or enjoy amazing natural surroundings in this gorgeous area.

Camino de Santiago

Camino de Santiago is one of the most famous pilgrimage routes, the most used part is the French trail which lies very close to our village. Many people from all over the world, even the most remote places, have gone their way either on foot, by bike or on horseback.

We know many of you are seeking a different kind of accommodation to rest. That is why we offer you a unique and outstanding place so that you can stop and relax. Your horse or pet are welcome so they can rest and recover from the hard trail.

If  you are tired and unwilling to walk 3 more kilometres, we can pick you up at Mansilla de Mulas (a nearby village) and we can bring you back to the trail the following day.
