Camino Portugues

The natural setting surrounding Grijó is the prettiest for a long stretch, high walls and lots of well-shaded spaces. The Monastery here is a particularly pretty place for a rest.

Accommodation in Grijó


Camino de Sant…

We walked in the Albuerge at 1.30 pm. The beds was not ready and the room not clean. All smells musty.
The bedroom ceilings in the first floor was moldy.

We went and find an other place to sleep.

I recommend you do the same.

The Coutorural offers a welcome alternative if you want to stay somewhere a little more luxurious. It is well signposted as soon as you arrive in Grijó. On offer is a farmhouse style dwelling with high quality units in a secure courtyard. It’s a haven of peace and even has a modest swimming pool. The hosts are superb, going out of their way to ensure you have a comfortable stay. It’s not cheap - I paid €67 for one night in August - but it was worth it as a place to relax, recover and prepare for onward Camino.

this place is closed dua coronavirus. we walked 34 kilometres to get here and no luck.


If you’re stopping here, the albergue is not located at the Monastery as indicated on the map. It is a small, yellow building on the left on the road as you approach the monastery. You must see the neighbor next door (first driveway beyond the albergue) who will let you in. He’s delightful. Bom Caminho!


If you stop here for a rest or overnight there is a lovely bakery just off ‘the way’ (50 metres) called Forninho do Mosteiro. Lovely welcoming staff and delicious food. Just before albergue (search google maps for bakery and you will find it)
