You can collect your pilgrim passport - the credential - at the pilgrim refuge of Jesus y Maria which is close to the cathedral. I think you can also get one at the cathedral but you would have to rely on opening times.
Have a great walk!

Hi, you can get a pilgrim passport from a building near the cathedral. It was kind of turn left (facing out of the cathedral dorr) walk down the road to the end where there is sort of trees and a square, turn left again and in the entrance to a building a lady behing a window gave us a credencial.
We got directions (slightly better ones - sorry mine are a bit vague) from a guy in the little room at the back of the cathedral where they stamp passports.

Hello…

I’m from Israel, my girlfriend is from England. At the moment I’m traveling in India. I want to start the way of Santiago from France – although I’m still not sure which path we’re going to take. We want to start in about a month or two.
Here are my questions:
1) Where exactly do I get the pilgrimage passport? Please, don’t just give me links to other “answers” in this forum because I’ve already read it quiet thoroughly (and for many hours) and found no answers – not to mention that some of the links are broken. I found ways to get it if you belong to a certain organization or a group. Or if you come from this country or another but could not find anything for myself. So, since I’m not in Europe at the moment my girlfriend (who is from England) will have to buy them for both of us. Where and how exactly can we obtain them? Can we do it by email? Letter? How do I pay for them?
2) Any suggestions regarding where to start from France? Since we also plan to take a tent we prefer to take routes that are less traveled.
Anyway, we would appreciate any assistance
thanks
