Camino Ingles, obtaining credential stamps

Ingles
We are walking the Camino Ingles mid September. As one of our group is blind we have taken the precaution of pre booking accomodation, mostly overnight stays in apartments. I suspect that apartments may not be able to stamp our credentials. Will there be alternative locations to obtain our mandatory 2 stamps per day. Any help appreciated, this is our first Camino.

Yes; not so numerous as on the Frances but pretty much every bar, cafe and many retail outlets; churches and public buildings will have one. You’ll have no difficulty.

It’s a great route and passes through authentic Galicia. The infrastructure is for the residents; not constructed for the Camino.

You will have no difficulty getting your daily stamps. As @henrythedog said, “pretty much every bar, cafe and many retail outlets; churches and public buildings will have one.” In fact, I usually have to be careful not to fill up my Credencial before reaching Santiago. Your Credencial will serve as a great souvenir of a walk that I’m sure you will enjoy. Be sure to enjoy an omelette in Betanzos. They’re some if the best that you’ll find in Spain.

Welcome to the forum.
We too have used private accommodation on the Inglés. Someone will need to give you the key to the apartment so you c ask them and if they have no sello then ask them to sign, date and give the name of the apartments and place. Many do have sellos and as others have said there are plenty of cafes etc who will have them. If you are staying 2 nights anywhere then get them to sign or stamp the credential for both nights.
Buen Camino

I'll agree!

A "Tourigrino" trip once Covid has passed, so 2023
Don't forget you can get stamps at the Post Office and Police stations too.

You don't say where you are starting out from. If from Coruna then you'll need to get some stamps on your home ground (I got my first from Canterbury cathedral in the UK); if starting from Ferrol you should be fine.
Enjoy the Ingles, it's a bit different!

I am starting my Camino Ingles from Ferrol on August 22! Thanks for posting the information about the sellos and also some of the highlights of the trip to come. I am looking forward to it so very much!
We are pre-booking accomodation and will spend two nights in Betanzos, breaking up the stage between Betanzos and Hospital de Bruma into two days and ferrying back and forth (hopefully) via taxi. Can't wait for the adventure and the miracles that the Camino always brings!

We are starting from Ferrol and walking what appears to be the standard 6 stages as laid out in the Camino Ingles guidde I'm using as a bible to the trip. The 2 15mile stages Betanzos-Bruma- Siguero are my main concern. Unsure as to how my 60 yr old knees will takeit. Again toi take any pressure off our walking we pre bookedn o as not to worry about getting to Bruma early to ensure accomodation en route.
Thanks everyone.
