Hi Lucy, last year I arrived at noon at the square before the Kathedral. The Pilgrim mass was just started so I went to Pilgrim office. I got my Compostela in about 15 minutes.When is the best time to queue for the compostela? I will be on santiago tomorrow 13th September and the day after 14th September
... I advise taking care of your personal arrival ritual at the Cathedral FIRST. Consign your rucksack somewhere for the day, get to the Cathedral, attend the noon Pilgrim Mass. After the Mass, check into your lodgings, store your rucksack, have lunch. There is plenty of time to get to the Pilgrim Office when there are short to nil lines. ...
You may live in hope Tom but names are Never read out - and I'm not sure they ever were!
