Where to obtain a credencial

Generally you can get a credencial at pilgrims' offices, albergues, churches, chapels, police stations, from the Guardia Civil, or sometimes at town halls.

If you have to start the Camino without an official credencial, just make sure to collect stamps on a piece of paper. Later on, having bought a credencial somewhere on the way, you can attach this piece of paper to it.

Here is a list of places where you can obtain a credencial:

Santiago de Compostela pilgrim's office (Rúa do Vilar, 1)
