In collaboration with the pilgrims office the forum is now providing the Certificate of Distance online. This certificate is currently available at the pilgrims office for €3,-. Making them available online is a trial, and we ask for a minimum donation of €2,- for the work involved in collecting orders and sending these out to you.

Who can apply for this Certificate?
- All pilgrims that have previously walked the Camino de Santiago and qualified for the Compostela.

The certificate is available here:

Please let me know if you have any question.

Greetings from Santiago,

Hola Ivar,
It would be good to have a joint one for our Camino. Is it correct that these certificates can be issued to a couple jointly? unlike the Compostela, so long as the correct information for both is sent.

Though they slow down the compostela line considerably :mad:, they are beautifully done and a big hit. I was surprised to see that just as many pilgrims from Sarria ask for them as from Sevilla, Germany, LePuy or other far flung distances.

It's now been almost two weeks since I've arrived here in Santiago and the rain tally holds steady at about two minutes of rain since April 30. :)

Buen camino, Laurie

I ordered one as a surprise gift for a friend who walked from Le Puy 10 years ago. It arrived today in the post. Thank you Ivar! You made my day :) So well packaged, it arrived in excellent condition. I really appreciate the effort you have gone to to provide this service for pilgrims.
