We have today booked our flights for a Camino that was supposed to happen in September 2020..... We leave Lisbon on August 8th. YAY!!!!

I have heard that the Alpriate albergue has not reopened following covid. Can some kind soul please confirm if that is true or not? Is there alternative accommodation nearby?

Also, is there an online resource of albergues and details that are open throughout the Portuguese Camino? I do have a guide book bought in early 2020 but of course Covid has taken some casualties, sadly, so I don't know how current that guidebook will be.

Thanks for any help

It is open. I stayed there at the beginning of May. They ask that you reserve in advance. When I stayed there they required proof of vaccination, and they had no pillows or blankets.

Here's the email address to reserve

Hi
I recently emailed the albergue at Alpriate and have received a reply confirming my reservation for the end of June.

We stayed there in March and loved it. Really nice volunteers there, very clean, and a great bread truck that came at the end of the day. Delicious little cafe within walking distance. Bom Caminho!
