BEFORE, DURING & AFTER
The albergue is exclusively for pilgrims.
The albergue is exclusively for pilgrims. Pilgrims are invited to stay when they start, during and after finishing their camino. Pilgrims are invited to stay multible days to recover and explore Porto.
We opened our doors on the 29th of May 2016, through a private initiative, with the partnership of Santa Casa da Misericórdia do Porto. We have already welcomed thousands of pilgrims from over 60 countries, and we can’t wait to meet you here too.
We are continuously trying hard to create what a pilgrim needs at the end of each day; a warm caring atmosphere where you can rest and get your energy back for the next day.
In essence we’re a pilgrim run albergue dedicated to the well-being of fellow pilgrims.
We are open all year round and you can easily make a reservation with us here on our page.
