Starting in Pontevedra

So I'm taking a couple of days off from being the tea guy after Sarria to join some camino friends on the Portugués from Pontevedra to Santiago.

I can't find anywhere to get a passport though it's too short to need one for a compostela, but it would be nice to collect the stamps. We set off tomorrow to Caldas de Reis. It feels rather more Portuguese here in Pontevedra than at home near Portomarin.

Any likes and I'll continue to post here.

I'm curious the answer to the passport question...as I have a friend meeting in Pontevedra to walk the last few days with us. I was wondering it is possible for her to get a passport?

Have you asked for a pilgrim passport at the Xunta albergue in Pontevedra? Here is their info page from Gronze.

Yes, he was aware of that.
there were some at the Pilgrims Office ,started from Pontevedra and were very disappointed that we did not write out their Compostela.
It ended up for 3 € each they could get a touristical documment.

My friend realizes she will not get a Compostela--this is more because I had my heart set on the Albergue in Herbon and was hoping she could access it too (though unsure if it is open?)

So as a nice souvenir de Caminho ,apply for the touristical document at the Pilgrims Office ,once arriving in Santiago.

Not sure why you cannot source a credencial. You live there at the moment. Have you asked locally? Parishes? Parochial albergues? Casa Ivar? Roncesvalles? Have you no other unfinished credencial?
