No matter how well prepared you are, you are likely to need to buy something else on the Camino de Santiago. The king of camping equipment in Spain is the mammoth sports superstore, Decathlon.

Other Towns and Cities on the Camino de Santiago with Camping Stores

I found camping stores in the following places on the Camino:

  • Ponferrada
  • Sarria (Peregrinoteca on the Camino itself). I bought my replacement backpack here. The bags they stock are cheap and not of especially good quality, which is ideal if you only need it to complete the Camino and are not likely to use it again.
  • Palas de Rei (on the Camino itself).
