Just in case I miss wishing you the best tomorrow, @ Bradypus: I will say a prayer for you and your wife as you celebrate your special wedding anniversary. I have to meet some people for chocolate con churros in the morning, but I will find a moment to go into the parish church of Santiago close by and say a wee prayer for you both. Buen camino de la vida...
Excuse the hijacking of your post. 😇

Since my husband and I earned our Compostelas a year ago today (July 24th), I wonder what it was then . The lines were awesome and confusing...;)

A few in the past; more in the future!
I just had a look at the pilgrim office website and saw that so far today they have issued 3286 Compostelas. That may not be the final total. I think that may be a record for a single day. An astonishing figure in any case!
This morning the pilgrim office website says the number for yesterday was 3288.

Yikes! I wonder if the advance registration and QR code system is helping to manage the volume. That was one if the principal drivers behind the change. The other main reason was COVID.

I will be there to volunteer in three weeks. There will certainly be a lot of pilgrims. But nearly 3300 in one day - that’s insane!

I know a lot of pilgrims want the feast day date 25/7/2022 on their Compostela. So an annual spike around the Feast if Santiago is routine.

It is only about 1600 in Santiago. Have they closed the front door gate yet? If not, the daily total will increase as groups are processed “behind the scenes.”

I arrived yesterday at 11:30 am. I did my QR code ahead of time showed it at the door and was allowed right in. I went down the stairs and received my ticket. #433. Back upstairs and in a short line. It took 20 minutes from front door to certificate. THANK YOU for posting the process and how to do it.

I arrived in Santiago yesterday. I did not go get a Compostela - and some other pilgrims I met along the way also did not either. So the number of pilgrim arrivals were higher. The lineup was LONG yesterday!!! 😊
Glad you made it to Santiago, bridge dancing queen Sara Dhooma .. 😂 Compostela can wait for a day or two. Cheers. Buen Camino.

Is it my imagination or is there not an announcement before the Pilgrim Masses at the Cathedral asking people NOT to take photos or videotape - which would include the swinging of the Botafumeiro?
