What is a “Credencial” and how do I get one?

The “Credencial” is a passport-like document that identifies you as a pilgrim along the Way and upon your arrival in Santiago de Compostela. Along the Way, you can have it stamped by the hotels, parishes, police stations, cafés and shops that have witnessed your passage.
When you arrive in Santiago, take your “Credencial” to the Pilgrim Office to obtain your “Compostela”. We provide all our clients with a blank official “Credencial” passport from Santiago Cathedral.
