This is good news for this Camino. I have obtained information in recent months about this route, and despite the closures of the Bigorne, Penude and Casa Diocesana de Vila Real hostels, three new hostels will open this year.
The first has already been inaugurated in the village of Moura Morta (between Ribolhos and Bigorne):
A Câmara de Vila Pouca de Aguiar vai transformar os edifícios do apeadeiro de Sabroso de Aguiar, na antiga linha ferroviária do Corgo, num albergue para quem cruza o Caminho de Santiago ou a Estrada Nacional 2 (EN2).
I will keep reporting when there is news.
