Briallos

Located along a deviation of the camino, well signed. It adds a few meters to the journey but has a municipal albergue in a quiet town.

The Road

Before arriving at Briallos, the camino approaches the N550 once more. At this point, there are signs for the Natural Park of the Rio Barosa, and the waterfalls. The waterfalls are 500m down the road directly opposite this point and are a worthwhile detour. Picnic areas and a bar and bathroom are at the base of the falls.

Not sure about the previous comments about Pedro, he was nice actually, nothing unusual. Okay price, and a great communal dinner. It was actually really nice to stay at a place like this after all the previous albergues or hostels. Those who did not have a reservation could sleep on matrasses in a side building. After all everybody had a place to stay who got here.
To be honest, I would be more then happy to see more places like this on the Camino Portuguese or any other Caminos.

We stayed here for a night and it was wonderfull! We had a lovely diner and laughs with Pedro. We didn’t experienced anything from above.

The beds are good, there are extra blankets, beer and soda and gooda warm showers.

Can only echo previous comments - basic auberge with weird and slightly rude host. Despite the collective dinner I would not stay there again. Basic breakfast.

The Host told me the Albergue is now private a no longer Municipal. Reservations may be required.

The place appears to be friendly with communal dinners, a real camino experience but unfortunately, Pedro was rude and condescending with a "do as you're told" attitude towards the guests as if you're at school.

Walked up here to use facilities and cafe but no joy - waterfall is nice for a dip though

The host was very unfriendly and didn't help for further assistance. He only said:No beds. While waiting for taxi other pilgrims came, having reservations, although it says: No reservations possible!
