Credencial update and other things from the Pilgrim Office


Staff member
Hi all,

I stopped by the pilgrim office yesterday and they gave me two documents that I thought I would scan in and publish to you all (see attachments below).

The first document is a document explaining the basics on how to use the pilgrims passport, some things about the opening hours of the pilgrims office in Santiago and the cathedral opening hours. Some pilgrimage 101 stuff. (Spanish only) :(

The 2nd one, is a document that was sent out from the pilgrims office in the process of the unification of the credentials in Spain that we have discussed earlier. (Also Spanish only) :(

Thought they might be of interest.

Thanks Ivar,
I haven't tried my usual Google translate on the documents yet so can you confirm that the info is the same as in your earlier post as regards the credentials issued by overseas Confraternities?
