Peaceable Projects Inc.
Peaceable Projects Inc. is a U.S.-based non-profit group that brings the vast resources of the wide world together with the ongoing needs of the people who live, work, and travel on the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail network in Spain.



I haven't even started my first Camino yet - so probably not the best source of advice, but I applied to Mundicamino by post a week ago (the form and instructions - in Spanish - are on and received my credencial today. I am doing a crash course in Spanish, so filled the form out with dictionary in hand! The credencial is 5 Euros for EU citizens, 10 for the rest of the world. I sent cash, secured according to their instructions.

Otherwise look at the replies to my previous query (obtaining one in Burgos), and on the Mundicamino site.

Good luck!
