300 meters to the west there is a supermarket

Albergue is closed and is supposed to open on Sept 01 2021

April 2022 - The albergue is open again since mid March, and they accept reservations on the phone. They say it is suggested to book every place in advance, including albergues, as they are not giving out every bed.

Can anyone confirm
If Alpriate albergue will open Sept 1/2021? Also, is it safe or not to walk Alpriate as a solo pilgrim?

michael

Do NOT take the way that is marked red above. Two female pilgrims were attacked hier 16 sep 2020 (more explanation when you Google it) and a female pilgrim was beaten and raped 4 years earlier. The police doesn't seem to care. I felt super uncomfortable walking there. So I would STRONGLY advice to take another road and skip this bit. (At least this - to be honest I felt very unsafe up to Tomár, if I could choose again, I'd rather start the Camino in Tomár!!

Good Albergue. Christina runs a tight ship and does a terrific job. This was a welcome refuge after a hot days walk.

Since I haven’t done this Camino before I cannot tell with certainty but it looks like they have changed the path. Right before that tunnel (very steep with only one lane for cars) the arrows point to the left and then, after quite some distance- could be 700m) it goes through that second tunnel (which is short, broad and loads of light coming through). :) Buen Camino!

Some new arrows take you into Granja, at the red brick bridge. If you want to stop and have a coffee go for it, if not follow the directions in the app or else you'll do 2 km for nothing.

The new price for a bed is 10 euros

There is only one shower and no stove, just a microwave. Great selection at the supermarket which surprisingly was big for the size of town. Easy to leave early if you request the ground floor beds (no bunks).
