Where to buy a credential in León, Spain?

Prepare for your next Camino on Santa Catalina Island, March 17-20
Any advice on where to buy a credential in León?

Many thanks in advance!
In Leon you can get a Credential here
ar the Carbajalas pilgrim albergue,
pl. Sta Maria del Camino, 3.
You need not stay there to get the Credential.

During easier times I stayed 10 times (!), in the Carbajalas pilgrim albergue and peeked at their Hospideria PAX facilities on the same plaza. PAX appeared to be very comfortable with private accommodation which you can reserve. PAX also has a proper dining room open to all.

Many thanks!!

Leon Cathedral or closest Tourists Information office!
A lot of Albergues have spare Credentials as well!
You could have got one before you left, from your own country’s confraternity of st James society!
 
The first edition came out in 2003 and has become the go-to-guide for many pilgrims over the years. It is shipping with a Pilgrim Passport (Credential) from the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.
Thank you, all! We picked up the credentials at Carbajalas pilgrim albergue this morning. : )

The trip came together a bit quickly, and I ran out of time to request one at home...

I have just seen a Facebook post from Foncebadon commenting on very heavy snow there. It looks as if the Camino route will be impassable for the moment.
