Post from relatives?

Well, tomorrow I am off to Barcelona for a long weekend and on the 17 May I leave SJPP on foot, if all goes as planned.
But before I go there is one more thing (oh, I have hundreds of questions but now I am beginning to feel somewhat "que sera, sera")

I have read somewhere how to get mail in Spain (postcards). It would be nice to have mail from relatives waiting for you in Santiago. I think I read it in this excellent forum but now I can not find it.
I remember that one should ask for mail both on the surname and on the Christian name. But what adress is it and what do they write on the envelope so that the postofficestaff holds on to it until I arrive? Is it "Poste restante" like when I send something to myself in a Pilgrims box?

Zeke, Peregrino soon to be.

Many thanks Ivar and to all who have been helping me so far.

I knew I read about the Lista de Correos somewhere, but right now my head seems a bit too small for my thoughts and worries.

Camino Frances here I come!
