Hi,
We are about to arrive in Geneva to start our Via Gebennensis. (The Geneva Way) I believe there is a small bookshop where the "yellow" guide can be purchased, does anybody know where we can purchase our Compostela certificates from in Geneva.

The Compostela certificate is only given out in Santiago by the cathedral's pilgrim office on completion of your pilgrimage. I think you probably mean a credencial or carnet du pèlerin - sometimes called a 'pilgrim passport'.

Current info for the Geneva route is in the yellow Amis guide, available here: http://chemins.amis-st-jacques.org/?page_id=6 Lodging in Switzerland is generally expensive, especially in the cities. There may be a few hostel or pilgrim lodgings available now.

Apparently there is pilgrim accommodation near the cathedral in Geneva at 10 Euro per night???
Perhaps check with the tourist office...

The little Notre Dame church was open when I set off on a Sunday pm. They had pilgrims passports there.
They have a website and long opening hours, see website for details.
