A new albergue in town, located in the basement of the community center. ATM and mini market in the first square you get to. Friendly bar.


This gravel path is part of an old Roman road, and the arrows have disappeared. Just keep on straight. When it arrives at a paved road, turn left. But DO NOT stay on this road all the way back to the N347. The arrow is gone, but when you get to a curve in the road, the track to the right is the one you want. That curve in the paved road is 300m from the visible N347, so if you get as far as the main road, you can either retrace your steps or walk the N347 into town.


The tower which gives the town its name (from the Arabic Al Burj) is no more. 

The Road:

Facing the crucifix side of the church, turn right towards the main road (newly cobbled) and turn right onto that road. You should now have a large modern building on your left (the community center and albergue), and you will be going downhill. Continue to the first road and turn left there, downhill.

The camino will bring you to the N347, which you follow to the left for a very short distance.

It then turns right onto a gravel path.
