Don't forget to take it with you


Pilgrim’s credentials is a document handed over to those who want to walk The Way by foot, by bike or by horse, and it is necessary to gain access to the hostels and to obtain the “Compostela”.

You can apply for it in advance in any friends of The Way association or in your town parish. You can also get it in the public hostels in those towns where it is usual to start the route (Roncesvalles, Montserrat, Jaca, Pamplona, Puente la Reina, Estella, Logroño, Santo Domingo de la Calzada, Burgos, León, Astorga, Ponferrada, O Cebreiro, Samos, Sarria…). At the University of Navarra (in Pamplona) they hand over the university credential and the normal one every day at any time (

Once on The Way, this document will be valid just if it is duly dated and stamped. Therefore, along the way you need to request the stamp and date in the places you will spend the night. Also, do not forget to stamp the credential in the town where you will begin your trip, even if you are not spending the night there. If the public hostel is closed, you can ask for it in any hotel, bar, shop, post office…


In Santiago, the Pilgrim Assistance Office will provide you with the “compostela” is you have gone through the last 100 km by foot or 200 km by bike (do not forget to get the stamp in the departure town).

The “compostela” is a centenarian document that proves you have walked The Way. There are two kinds of “compostela” depending on why you are doing The Way: one is religious (pietatiscausa), the other one is not.
