    Medallion from Pilgrim’s Office in St. Jean

    My daughter and I walked the Camino this past summer. When we began in St. Jean, we were given little slips of paper explaining how to get a commemorative medallion from the Pilgrim’s Office for a modest fee. We of course lost the slips of paper. Anyone have the instructions? Thanks.
