I will be traveling from Madrid to Ponterrada and walking about 12 miles that day. I want to make the most of my time in Ponferrada - can anyone tell me whar I can get my credentials stamped in Ponferrada. Thank You

Hello Geoffrey,
You can get your credencial stamped at the Templar castle, or at the Basilica (I believe, if I recall correctly). I think some of the bars and restaurants in Ponferrada have sellos as well.
After leaving Ponferrad there are no albergues until you get to Cacabelos which is a great walk - some lovely churches (check to see if they are open) and some nice vinyards. Also some terriffic places to visit in Cacabelos.... a bodega, old church that is a museum, the river and great restaurants.
Buen Camino!

The albergue in Ponferrada also has credenciales and sellos available.

I agree, albergues in all big cities as Ponferrada are beginning points for many pilgrims so they use to have credenciales.

Buen Camino,
