    COVID Entry to Spain from the UK

    The list of high risk countries is not very long at this moment, but I'm sure many countries will be added in the days to come due to the fast rising infection numbers all over Europe and the Omicron variant.

    All those passengers who come from a high risk country in relation to SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, must present a certificate/document certifying vaccination, diagnostic test of active infection of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus or a document certifying you have recovered COVID-19 to enter Spain.

    Mass

    I know there are masses in English, but according to the official website of the Cathedral de Santiago the 12.00h and 19.30h masses are pilgrim's masses. I knew it would be in Spanish but I did expect some words about the pilgrim's who just arrived.

    Mass

    They didn't when I attended a pilgrimsmass at 19.30h in September. Also thought numbers of pilgrims arriving last 24 hours would be mentioned. Didn't happen either. Maybe only at the 12.00h mass.

    Prices for 2022 Accommodations

    I don't know about de Frances and next year, but I know what happened on de Portugues last year: I booked 17 hotels /hostels/pensions for May 2020. When I had to cancel and rebook for May 2021 prices had not changed. Then I had to rebook again for Sept 2021 and most places had raised their...

    It is mandatory to present EU COVID Digital Certificate or a negative test* in: - Tourist accommodation, upon check-in (where in the case of tourists from the United Kingdom it is also acceptable to present a proof of complete vaccination recognized for the purpose of entering our country...

    The queues in Santiago

    Okay, that last line makes me wonder: Does clicking the 'Send' (or 'Alta individual' or 'Create a group') button get you a QR-code and number just like the QR-code and number you get at the Pilgrim's office to line up for a Compostela? If not, why would you have to be in Santiago already to send...

    Credential: first stamp and starting date

    I have a Portuguese credential with a first page for personal details + starting place + starting date. The second page (first page for the stamps) has place for the first stamp + date.

    Credential: first stamp and starting date

    I will be in Porto the day before I start walking the Camino Portugues. I already ordered my credential online but of course I will have to get my first stamp from the Cathedral in Porto. If I get my stamp the afternoon/evening before I start walking, does that mean that date will be put in my...

    Spiritual, Religious, or ??

    Can I ask you something else? There's the digital form on the Pelgrim's office website now. When you click 'register', choose 'single' and select English language you can fill in the form. But then the only option to continue is 'create a group'. When you select Spanish language you can...

    New digital Credential is introduced from the Cathedral.

    Does anyone know if this digital credential can also be used on the Portugues part of the Camino Portugues? Or only in Spain/Galicia?

    Spiritual, Religious, or ??

    I always read that you had to fill in a form (on paper) at the Pelgrims Office to obtain a Compostella. They would ask for your reasons to walk and the three options where something like: religious, spiritual and other reasons. You would get a Compostella if you walked for religious or spiritual...

    The queues in Santiago

    Several websites, including the official site of the Pelgrim's office explain getting a numbered ticket with QR code that allows you to see what number they're at. This is the first time though I find out that apparently you cannot get a numbered ticket anymore before you have completed an...

    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    This menu looks good, lot of variety! And I'm definitely not complaining about the price of the menu's.

    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    No, they were definitely menu del dia at lunchtime (poster went to supermarket for small dinner later in the day).

    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    I've seen some you tube video's from menu del dia's on the camino and it looked like the main was always something like chicken or cod with fries. No problem with meat or fish with fries, but every day? Would love to try the local specialties but I think you have to order from the carta then?

    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    But the topic starter just said the menu del dia is much better than de menu peregrino 🤔 Or is Pilgrim Menu not the same as menu peregrino?

    Portuguese Credential Has ARRIVED!!!

    This one also doesn't fit well in the plastic holder I bought with it. If I had known the right size I wouln't even have ordered the holder with it: it's the standard size to fit car registration papers in my country, but it's a bit to wide and not long enough for the credential, it sticks out a...

    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    I haven't walked the camino yet, so the difference is not very clear to me. From what I understand the Menu del Dia is originally for the Spaniards themselves, but of course everyone can order them, including pilgrims. Served at lunch time. Pilgrim Menu is 'invented' for the pilgrims because...
