Here are three places to get your pilgrim credential in Barcelona

St. Pau del Camp (St. Paul in the Fields)
Carrer de Sant Pau, 99
Romanesque monastery

Església de Sant Jaume (Church of St. James/Santiago)
Carrer de Ferran, 28, 08002 Barcelona
Parrish church dating back to the 14th Century, former church for the convent of the Trinitarians.

Palau Episcopal de Barcelona (Bishops Palace)
Carrer del Bisbe, 5, 08002 Barcelona. (Across from the Cathedral)
Ask the guard just inside the entry

As for the stamps

Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar is often mistakenly referred to as the Cathedral of the Sea. The church is worth a visit, but finding the sello was an effort. Rick and I spent some time traipsing about the church asking various staff members until finally locating the stamp at the gift counter.

Sagrada Familia offers the tourist stamp at the information window by the ticket offices. The official stamp I obtained by asking after the mass in the crypt chapel. The priest was very kind and took me up to his office as they didn’t have one in the sacristy. I had asked afterthought international mass in the basilica proper, but was directed to the tourist information window. Both masses are highly recommended.

In San Cugat, the Monastery is well worth a visit, but for a stamp I would head to the tourist office in front of the monastery. They also had some information about the Camino.

in Ullastrell, I obtained the stamp at the town hall.

In Terrassa, I obtained the stamp at the Parrish office across the street from the church complex, La Seu d’Agara, a collection of three Catalán Romanesque churches. The Parrish office was open in the evening.

Thanks Rick. I was thinking that as well, but wasn’t certain. I have edited my post to provide that information. That was a fun day we spent in Barcelona together exploring the churches. Thanks for introducing me to St. Pau del Camp.

It was. We almost did a camino stage of walking. Thanks to you for showing me that restaurant in the Gothic Quarter, I went back the afternoon before starting my camino. I don't remember its name but I'm sure I could find it again.

Well, to make this post interesting to others I'll add a bit of sello information. At Monserrat you can get a sello at the Hotel Abat where you check-in for the albergue if the pilgrim office is closed. Also, since you got me looking at my Camino Catalan credencial, I noticed that the sellos for the albergues in Pueyo de Fañanás, Bolea, and Sarsamarcuella are identical except for the names of the towns.

Now here are some pictures of some of the places we visited on our walk (though some were taken at other times).
