The camino goes through the municipal gardens and then under the N10. From this point, the new camino might get confused with the old route. Shortly after the camino passes under the N10, it passes a small factory and then turns right. <<The old route continued straight here and took you over the tracks and back to the busy road.>> By turning right the camino continues along a much quieter and safer path to Vala do Carregado.
NOTE: The old arrows indicating the way over the busy road may still exist.
