A small town but with plenty of services, it is the first in a while that has suburban sprawl (however minor it is).

Along the bike path at the "upper" part of town you will find O’Bras, and at the end of the road is the church and albergue (with laundromat beneath) as well as a restaurant.

History

The names of Alvaiázere, and Alvorge further along the camino (as well as a great deal of other words beginning with "al-", both derive from Arabic. In the case of Alvaiázere it derives from ‘the falconer’ and in the case of Alvorge it comes from ‘the tower’. The tower is long gone, but the falcons may still be found.

The Road

There are several roads out of town, but the camino is well marked. Still, pay close attention to the arrows and if you are a pre-dawn walker, you are advised to check it out in advance.

Leave town by way of the road in front of the church, turning right at a B large palm tree.

Albergue pinheiro’s is not to be missed! Not the most modern facilities but the host Carlos is fabulous and makes an experience out of getting your credential stamped. We had dinner at restaurante O Brás which is another experience not to be missed. Most amazing attentive service and food. Such a good experience in this town!!

I had a wonderful meal in Albergaria O Brás. I would highly recommend it. Didn’t sleep there though, but would have done so, if I thought it was open.
