There is a 16-bed albergue behind the post office near the entrance to the village. Call English-speaking José in advance on +351 914 893 243 to arrange your stay as there’s no on-site reception. The albergue has a basic kitchen for self-caterers, and there’s a grocery store in town but it’s closed on Sundays.
Leaving Caldelas, turn off the main road at the camino information board, then turn right at the church and continue straight. The exit out of Caldelas is not signed but soon the arrows restart. Apart from a short trail through a lovely forest about 2km out of Caldelas, the camino is asphalt for the 6km to Santa Cruz.
