According to a report on TVG today, over 110.000 pilgrims have arrived to Santiago so far this year.

The number comes from a study made by the University of Santiago, and uses number of nights stayed at albergues to measure the number of pilgrims (not the number of compostelas).

See the report here
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
10% More pilgrims than last year

For those who read Galego, here is a pdf.file of the research done.

While everyone is complaining about overcrowding it seems that there are only 10% more pilgrims than last year.
