Again, I should like to remind you that these numbers represent ONLY those
pilgrims who sought, and obtained the Compostela; those receiving the
Certificate are not included. It has been estimated that the numbers of pilgrims in one
or another of the Camino routes is, conservatively, five to seven times
larger.
Another point of interest is the fact that beginning in September, until
Easter of the following year, the number of foreign pilgrims tends to exceed that
of Spaniard pilgrims.
