Jim, I would like to arrange the same. How did you do this and may I ask what contribution is expected?
Hi MaxHelado,
I've recently been in contact with another party that made the same arrangements and they were successful. First, email your request to: botafumeiro@catedraldesantiago.es
The cathedral will then likely email you back requesting that you pay a fee of 450 euros in the form of a wire transfer to the Archbishop of Santiago and they'll include the bank info needed to do that.
According to my understanding, that's it.

All the above is correct it needs to be a least one week in advance

I fear that the 450€ may be a bit too salty for me. But another idea would be to share the cost. I will be arriving in Santiago on Monday 6th June. Anyone else arriving that same day? Happy to arrange it if others could help with the cost.

Max, I requested the same and had about 5 offers but the logistics and figuring out the split that was fair wasn’t easy as well as payment so I Just bit the bullet as one would say and did it asking that at the service they could give what they could. The Catedral sets aside Two booths for those that pay 5 to 6 per booth

So the booths can hold 10 to 12 people in total? How does the Cathedral know who to admit into the booths? Forgive me but I can't block the image of a Golden Ticket!

I can certainly see the logistical problem of collecting money ahead of arrival in Santiago but I can also see a practical problem in collecting it on the day! How will you do that?

I’ve just asked that when they see me and my friend to just approach and give what they can
