Pilgrims credencial: Danish or Spanish...(?)


I have done the camino 3 times already. Everytime I left Copenhagen as I lived in Denmark... When arriving in Samos I was mentioned as "Annette de Dinamarca", and in Santiago among the pilgrims arriving from Denmark.

This year when arrving in Santiago... I will be mentioned among the Spanish pilgrims and not the Danish, though I am Danish. I will not be Annette de Dinamarca - but "Annette de España "or "Annette de Barcelona". (I've been living in Spain for the past two years). This will be a new experience to this years (short) Camino :wink:

...I will pick up my credencial in the Cathedral of Barcelona. where the yellow arrows (las flechas amarillas) are painted on the pavement just outside the door :D

Annete, there's a long tradition from pilgrims who went to Santiago from Barcelona.

Very close to the Cathedral (I lived there till I was 10 years old) is the St James Square, a Very important place in Barcelona.

The yellow arrows go to Montserrat and from there continues by the Camino Catalan (Sta. Maria del Cami, La Panadella, Cervera, Tarrega, ...) very well marked by the Barcelona Association)

Who knows, when it will be possible, to walk the Camino Catalan ...

Buen Camino, Annete
