Does anybody know if there is a possibility to get a wax stamp on the Camino del Norte?

If yes - where?

Buon Camino

300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).
Camino walkers love this gripping, intriguing, mystery with history novel.

Martin,
Would you please explain what a wax stamp is? Is it an ink pad for stamping or a seal to sign a document?

I think that he is talking about a wax seal.
There are several examples in a thread about favorite sellos.


This one is my favourite från Albergue Pinheiros in Alvaiázere, Portugal he melted wax and then used and old sigill stamp. It took several minutes to get it and we got great stories while he did it.

Trecile,
Thanks for this info. Hence Martin wants a distinctive seal from the Camino del Norte. OK

#9 on your linked list is from the Norte but no exact location cited!

I have one. I took a video of him doing it. I will look through my photos and vids and try to pin point the location.

I got one in 2019. It was from a tiny metal working shop outside of O Vilar, I think. On the right side of the path, music playing and a short walk up a drive. Lovely, kind man.
Super - Thank you. I will try to location when I pass by in a day

This was back in 2016, but maybe he's still there: I got a wax stamp from an artist on the stage between Baamonde and Miraz. Here are a couple photos (second one is the outside of his shop/residence), and when I can hunt down my credential I'll see if the name of the place is on there!

Edit: Found the stamp, looks like the location is Xeixón (Seixón), about 2.7km before Miraz (stage 35A according to Gronze, so towards the end of the Norte). Hope he's still there!

It's amazing to me all the special memories and little details we each carry within us from our various Caminos.

I’ve got a couple on my first credenciales and, ever since, I’ve avoided wax ‘stamps’ when offered. The credencial doesn’t fold flat and you have to be careful to fully unfold the credencial before getting future sellos as an over-enthusiastic stamp on the reverse side of the wax would fracture it.

Better in theory than in practice IMHO.

I wondered if that would be a problem. I think that a wax stamp at the lighthouse in Finisterre would be perfect for a final stamp though.
