I don't know if a pilgrim passport is necessary or why it is. But since now I don't have enough time, could I get it at Madrid before I start the walk?

Dare I say you seem rather underprepared for your camino - maybe a study of this forum would help.
If you intend to stay at pilgrim alberques - as most do - then you will need a credencial (pilgrim passport), which you present at the alb when you arrive, and which will be stamped. If you want a compostela when you reach Santiago, you need at least 2 stamps a day from places in the last 100kms before SdC, if that makes sense.
I'm sure you can get a credential in Madrid - no doubt someone on here will post the info,
Buen camino.

If you look in this web adr it´s a place where you can by a credencial. I bought it there last year. On the website they have there openingtimes. If this does´nt work for you you can buy a credencial at the Iglesia Parroquial de Santiago. The church and the association is close to Puerta del Sol in the citycenter of Madrid,

God luck, Roger

Don't think any of this is of much use to the OP, she hasn't been back since joining (and posting) on 25th April.....
