My husband and I will in Malaga, and we want to start the Camino from the Santiago Church in Malaga. Can we purchase credentials at the church or somewhere in Malaga? Thanks and Happy New Year

You can get one from the Amigos in Malaga. I think this gets you to their web page:


When I emailed them I got a response in English from a young American. They picked me up, took me to their HQ, gave me a credential and up-to-date tips plus a detailed itinerary prepared by one of their members who had left Malaga a few days before me.

Wow, that was good treatment. The amigos' office is a bit out of the way and a couple of years ago they were only open for a few hours on a Tuesday evening. The church of Santiago in Malaga is currently closed for renovation, but I believe you can get a credencial in the cathedral if you wish.

I posted to my blog every day from the Camino Mozárabe in 2015, which may be useful to you - see link below.
Buen Camino!
