Mansilla de las Mulas


Villamoros de Mansilla

Medical Center

There is a nice place for a swim in the river in the northwest corner of Mansilla. Cross over the small pedestrian bridge towards the camping place (not the road bridge that the camino crosses) located in the northwest corner of town. Getting there will take you through several of Mansilla’s small plazas.


The Virgen de Gracia is celebrated on the second Sunday in September. San Martín is celebrated on the 11th of November.


Mansilla traces its history back to Roman times, and the walls that continue to surround most of the city bear evidence to its importance; it was both a layover on the Roman road to León and a market town (mostly mules).

The Road

Mansilla still has large sections of its defensive walls, look back when leaving town to get the best view of them.

Much of the way between here and Puente de Villarente is adjacent to the road.

Camino de Sant…

We also had lunch at Restaurante La Curiosa, and can confirm that their 16 euros lunch was absolutely fantastic. Some of the best food we’ve had on the Camino!!

Camino de Sant…

I stayed in a wonderful place 6km out of the village with Miguel and Sally. It is a villa with private rooms and small dorms, a lovely garden with a pool and a very well equipped kitchen. Most importantly though, Miguel is the most wonderful host I met so far. He organised a transport to pick us up in Mansilla (you can also get a transport back to continue your Camino) and also did everything else do make our stay as nice as possible. We would have loved to stay longer!

Camino de Sant…

We stayed the night here and had a fantastic lunch at Restaurante la curiosa. It was a set menu for 16 Euros (including wine water etc) and a huge cut above the average pilgrim meal. Clearly the best restaurant in town, possibly in the area as there were lots of locals having lunch there. A beautiful upstairs room too. No written menu but the waiter was very patient and helpful with our basic Spanish.

Stayed in El Jardin del Camino, for 12 euro, but not clean, even the beds were with dust. Mansilla is a nice town.

Stayed in Pension Blanca September 2021 - very clean, very helpful host and great value for €40/twin room. Mansilla is a lovely town, well worth a visit.
