From 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 location from where the pilgrim started their Camino de Santiago.

The distance certificate can be requested by any pilgrim who has completed the Camino at any time.

All data related to the person who has completed the walk (arrows, starting point, kilometers traveled) are taken into account.

This certificate indicates the specific day and starting point of the pilgrimage, the kilometers traveled, as well as the arrival day and the route taken to Santiago. It is a document that complements the traditional Compostela, providing more information about our pilgrimage. A beautiful memory after the end of our journey!

For example, if you complete the Camino de Santiago from Sarria (which represents the last 100 Kms of the Camino, the minimum distance to obtain “The Compostela“), you are also entitled to receive the Distance Certificate at the Pilgrim’s Office, located at Rua das Carretas, 33.

With this Certificate, the Pilgrim’s Office in Santiago responds to the requests of many pilgrims who wanted more information about their journey to the Camino de Santiago.

We await you, pilgrim. Buen Camino!
