Hi all just wondering how many blank pages for stamps are in the passport credential please? I ordered 1 but it only has 7 blank pages, although the cover looks the same. recommendation good tattooist in Santago and
Also someone mentioned roof top tour at cathedral. Is that booked directly with them please?

Thanks (so many questions)🤭
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
It isn't clear from your post, You are comparing the 7-page one that you ordered, to another one with the same cover but unknown number of pages. My credential - black cover, ordered from Ivar - has 7 pages, with 8 squares on each page, so places for 56 stamps.

I have no tattooist recommendation, but here is a thread to look at.

For info on the rooftop tour, try this thread. The second post has a link to the ticketing website.
 
I usually get a 2nd one, some place like Burgos. Especially for that last 100km when you need to get 2 stamps per day. The map of the Caminos on the back is nice to have.
Book your rooftop tour directly with the cathedral.
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
ok thanks

I can recommend Sagrada Corazón Tattoo in Santiago.
 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

€46,-

Hey there, got a follow up question for you. I ordered my credential from Ivar as well. Am I supposed to go into Cathedral Sé to get it stamped or registered or something? Is the main purpose of getting the stamps to get a validation at the end of the journey? Thank you-

Yes, the main purpose is to get the stamps. A special place/box is on the first page, just in case you get your credential from a place that wants to put their issuing stamp there. I think some national Amigos associations do that. But you can decide where you want to get the first stamp. Many people like to get it from a special church in city where they start, but there is no requirement.
