Spain Post Office - as luggage storage

Jump to last reply

I would like some help from someone who is currently in Spain or who has good knowledge of the services of Spain Post Office.

Objective: Store a package of about 15 lbs (7 kg) in a post office in the Madrid area for later retrieval economically by shipping from one post office (i.e. at the airport) to another post office near a train station.

Situation: I will be walking El Camino de Santiago for up to 40 days with my back pack. I have a package of other clothes, shoes and other misc. items that I need after my walk. I will arrive in Bajaras airport and go to Chamartin train station to go to Irun. After 40 days I will return to Chamartin to collect the package to begin my post-walk activities in Spain.

Background: Last year I walked El Camino de Santiago from France. In Leon, I shipped my heavy jacket and other stuff in a box to the post office in Santiago and picked up my box after about two weeks. So I know this can be done.

Question: Is shipping to another post office to be held until reclaimed within Spain allowed in all post offices in Spain? If so, how long will they hold it before disposing it?

I will not carry the package for 600 miles with me if I cannot store it economically. If it costs so much to store for 40 days, I might as well buy them new after the camino. If the post office will hold it for 40 days, that would be ideal.
