The big map o the Caminos de Santiago


Camino(s) past & future
walked in October 2015, plan to walk again in October 2016
Stupid question: Is the credential, the pilgrim's passport, the same for the Camino Frances and the Camino Portuguese?
I did the Camino Frances previously and had ordered the passport from the American Pilgrims website. Can I order the same one and use if for the Portuguese camino, or is there a special one?


Keeping it simple
Camino(s) past & future
Camino Frances (2015)
Camino Portugues (2017)
Lebaniego (Planning)
Anytime. The Camino Portugues is amazing, I hope you have a great time!
Camino(s) past & future
(2015) Frances
(2018) Portuguese
(2019) VdP Seville to Salamanca
(2020) VdP Salamanca to Santiago
Although as someone pointed out you have to say (since you're now in Portugal) "um carimbo faz favor" or I think "um carimbo por favor" works as well. Walking it later this month from Lisbon to Santiago. I'll probably leave enough Portuguese to speak Spanguese
