Camino: Useful Information
In order to obtain a certificate in Santiago de Compostela on completing the Camino you need a pilgrim's passport. This is stamped every day by the albergue (refugio) you stay in and acts as proof of your journey.
You can obtain a blank passport from many of the larger, more popular refugios along the route. Or they are available in the UK from the Confraternity of Saint James, but to have to become a member first. Their contact details are below.
My passport entries can be viewed on by clicking HERE.
