What is the Pilgrim Passport and why do I need stamps?

Written by Gail Delahunt

The Pilgrim passport (Credencial del Peregrino) will be proof that you have walked the 100km necessary to obtain your ‘Compostela’ or ‘Pilgrim Certificate’, the official document to your journey. You will need to collect at least two stamps per day. You can get a stamp at your accommodation, any cafe/bars/restaurants your stop in as well as some shops and churches along the Way.

We will provide you with pilgrim passport per person as part of our holiday pack. You can also read more here about getting your Pilgrim Certificate:  How to Get Your Camino Compostela – The Pilgrim Office Santiago.
