Hello Cecilia,

This is interesting information. And to see that so many pilgrims arrive each day!

Hello Cecilia,
I thought quite a few people would be interested in this website. It is in several languages and among other information shows the numbers of people who have arrived in Santiago each day.
The website gives very accurate statistics on those who applies and receives the Certificate in Santiago Cathedral Office. This forum however mentions there are five times as many people walking simultaneously with the pilgrims, many of which do not apply or receive the Certificate.

The pictures showing the crowd of walkers arriving in Santiago, and the comments on the full albergues, indicates that there much more walkers than that mentioned in the Cathedral website.

The Cebreiro, Sarria etc figures show whey there have been some report of albergues not being overflowing farther towards Roncesvalles/France - they certainly MUST be busy within a week or so from Santiago.
