The Credencial or Pilgrim’s Passport will give you access to the organised system of pilgrim accommodation in Spain, France and Portugal.

You will need to present the stamped credencial at the Pilgrim’s Office in Santiago, as proof of the journey, in order to earn the Compostela, a certificate of completion given to all pilgrims who walk the last 100km or cycle the last 200km to Santiago.

When you register at an albergue or visit a church or other historic site, you will receive a stamp (sello) in your passport. Once home this will serve as a unique souvenir of your pilgrimage.

Stamps can also be obtained in churches, cafes, bars, hotels, tourist offices and so forth.
