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.

Did not experience any of the rudeness , the other comments talked about.
Warm welcome with music and wood fire on to welcome me. Warm sleeping accommodation , which you can not say about many other A in December.
Warm soup and bread and eggs ready to take as well. Just lovely. Jorge and this Albergue I can recommend fully

Pedro strongly advised alburgue doesn’t open until 3pm and to come back then. Upon our return he was welcoming once he knew we had a reservation however he was volatile and agree with previous comments regarding his behavior towards guests.

Camino de Sant…

Just as the other comments said, host is rude. Was yelling as a pilgrim to get out since they didn’t make a reservation yet there were 3 empty beds that never got filled. Communal dinner was a very weird experience as the host was extremely controlling the entire time.

Pedro is rude and condescending. This is the case towards women in particular as I hear the same story from most of the ladies I stayed with.
This put a dampener on such a beautiful space.
I feel as if Pedro enjoys the power especially during check in process.

I loved how they had lots of drinks and snacks for a donation. The communal dinner was also enjoyable esp because they cater to vegetarians.

It’s a shame that I very on edge about the host and felt afraid of him.

Es war eine tolle Erfahrung dort den Abend zu verbringen. Es wurde gemeinsam gegessen und getrunken. Tolle Menschen und toller Platz. Es war eine besondere positive Erfahrung und es gab alles was man brauchte.

3.05.2023/A detour to the Barro waterfall is worthwhile after a long hike. It is very nice to have a coffee/cold drink or to satisfy a small appetite with pizza by the rushing water. Very nice place.

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.
