    There is continuing concern about incidents affecting female pilgrims. We reiterate the advice given by a number of pilgrim associations and the Spanish authorities:

    Before you set out, programme the emergency number 112 into your telephone.

    Consider downloading this App issued by the Spanish government:

    https://alertcops.ses.mir.es/mialertcops/info/info.xhtml

    The app allows anyone in Spain to send an alert from a mobile device "smartphone'"straight to the police..

    If you feel threatened or uncomfortable or if you are assaulted in any way TRY TO REMOVE yourself to a place of safety immediately

    Call the police – the best number to use is 112 which covers all of Spain (and much of Europe) and which has operators who speak English.

    And please, please, REPORT all incidents to the police. Too many of these unlawful aggressions are never reported, which means that the full extent of the problem is hidden from the authorities.

    Just to say that the mods and a few forum members have come up with a general information post to bring together some of the important safety points. Our idea is to post the language every time a thread reports a new incident. Hopefully this will be of interest and help, particularly to female pilgrims. Buen camino, Laurie
