Credencial in Santiago or Tui / Valenca?


New Member

We're walking the camino portugues from Tui / Valenca to Santiago soon, and were wondering where we can pick up a credencial. We are flying into Santiago at the start - can we get one from the Pilgrim's Office, or the cathedral? Alternatively is it possible to pick one up in Tui / Valenca? We'll be arriving there late on a Sunday, and setting off early Monday morning, so are worried that anywhere that has one will be closed, and we'll have to start without it.

Any info greatly appreciated.

All the best,

Hi Della

You can certainly get a credencial from the Pilgrims' Office in Santiago before you go off to Tui - that may be the safest option. Otherwise I'd try the Albergues in Valenca/Tui.

If you end up trying to get them in Vamenca or Tui I'd be interested to know how you get on.

Good luck and Buen Camino

We collected our credential late one afternoon from a representative of the Tui cathedral/church. He was seated at a table just inside the front door. That was May last year. Have a great camino.
