Shortly before arriving at the Monastery the camino turns left sharply. Follow that road 500m, and turn right onto a trail through the forest.
Where the forest ends turn right, and at the next big road (N318), turn left again into Vilarinho.
This was our first stop after leaving Porto and our first night ever in an Alburque - Pepe was an amazingly helpful host and the other guests were wonderful. We walked to the little local market and got stuff to cook a simple pasta dinner.
There was no one there to explain what to do and it was the first night on the Camino. We read signs & picked a bed. It is very beautiful.
Dormi no mosteiro, muito bom
