Starting from Leon on Good Friday-Passport


New Member
Can anyone tell me if I will be able to get a passport on this day and can they suggest where I could collect it? It is my first visit and will be arriving from the UK via Madrid the day before.
Thank you also for this amazing site, full of invaluable information.
I am walking to Finisterre and have allowed myself 18 days. Is that enough?

Thank you

You can get one at the refuge run by the nuns - 18 days should be plenty (and, if you do run out of time, there's always the bus from Santiago to Finisterre)

Credencials are also available at Leon Cathedral, from the information desk on the right hand side, inside the front door. Also depends on when you arrive in Leon, the Cathedral often shuts around 7pm although it might be later during the Easter period.
