Azambuja is a medium sized town with all the necessary services. 

The Road

Leaving town means another railway crossing. The arrows lead you to the train station, and an elevated pedestrian bridge (painted blue) gets you over the track and onto the first stretch of country walking for some time. You will be in flat farmland nearly the entire way to Santarém. A few villages and countless large Quintas can be found along the way.

This Albergue is great. It has everything you need. For only 10€ you get a sheet and pillow. The capacity of Albergue is proximately 14 - 16 people (everyone is sleeping in the same room). There are 2 showers, 2 toilets, garden where you can dry your clothes and small kitchen (with microwave and electric kettle, unfortunately without stove). This Albergue was very clean. It is located few metres from the Camino and there is a shop nearby.

The last week of May sees the highlight of the social calendar for this small town. The running of the bulls. Anyone who passes through here from 24th to 31st May may have to walk a little faster than normal to keep out of the way of the charging bulls and horses. Town goes into party mode.

Camino de Sant…

We stayed in Azambuja on August 14 2021, in an albergue which is not listed in the app. It is called, unsurprisingly, Albergue de Peregrinos de Azambuja. When the camino turns right towards the railway, don't take the turn but keep walking on the street for like 50 meters. The albergue will be on the right, marked by the shell of Santiago. Had a QR code on the door, which gave us a phone number, we called it and the hospitaleiro arrived in 15 minutes. Nice small albergue, €10 for a bunk bed, we were the only ones staying there. (I took the idea from a comment under the paroquial albergue in this app, but that one is closed and this is a different albergue.)

We decide skip all industrial outskirts and too a training from lisboa - cost 4,55 and many people told as, that was good idea. Theres really nothing, jus sun and road.

Camino de Sant…

The Albergue Espirito Santo ist definitely closed. But the News Albergue, just a few steps away ist a good place to stay and highly recommended.
