Since 2017, in addition to the famous and well-known “Compostela”, you can now obtain the Distance Certificate, which is the document that certifies the exact place from where the pilgrim started his The Santiago Way.
The distance certificate can be requested by any pilgrim who has made the Way on any date.
All the data related to the person who made the walk are taken into account (Arrows, starting point, Kilometers traveled)
This certificate indicates the specific day and the starting point of the pilgrimage, the kilometers made, in addition to the day of arrival and the route along which it has been pilgrimage to Santiago. It is a document that complements the traditional Compostela, providing more information about our pilgrimage. Nice memory after the end of our trip!
So for example if you do the Camino de Santiago from Sarria (representing the last 100 km of the Camino, minimum distance to obtain "The Compostela“) You are also entitled to receive the Distance Certificate at the Pilgrim Service Office, located at Rua das Carretas, 33.
With this Certificate the Pilgrim Service Office de Santiago responds to the requests of many pilgrims who wanted more information about their trip to the Camino de Santiago to be reflected.
We are waiting for you, pilgrim. Good way!
