An old thread but I got a great sello (carimbo in these parts) today that I wanted to share. The pension where we’re staying in Mértola (Casa do Funil) didn’t have a stamp but one of the owners is an urban sketcher so he made two of these special sellos for us!

Edit: the sketch shows the clock tower of Mértola which can be seen from the accommodation.

I didn't notice that this thread was old until you mentioned it! I hope it keeps going.
Your "one of a kind" sello is special indeed!

It's hard to understand why this thread disappeared so quickly long ago. Thanks for resurrecting it @jungleboy!
A cheerful diversion on a gloomy wet day to browse old credencials.
This beautiful one is a depiction of the magnificent dome of Iglesia de la Peregrina in Sahagun.

Presumably we were all out walking, busily gathering sellos in realtime. Now would have been a much better time to post this thread.
:oops:;)
Thanks for ressurecting it, @jungleboy !

On the Invierno, between Sarria and Ourense.
The design includes the rose window of the 12th C chapel next door.
Where is this, Paul?? I missed it!
That one you just posted from Sahagun is a real beauty.

On the Miño, south of the dam.

The hostal, is basically next door to the church, hidden in the trees. Not sure if it is still open.

Ohhhh. I see now. North of where the Invierno crosses it at Belesar.
🙏
Hmmmmmm. Next time a detour may be in order.
A bit less than 8 km from Diamondi; it's labelled 'temporarily closed,' hopefully that's not permanent!

Sorry for the digression. Back to sellos!

The church in Sahagun issued this striking "half-way" certificate.

My husband and I received these sellos at Art's Gallery just outside of Triacastela (Sept/Oct CF 2019).
We happened to run into Arthur as he was returning from his daily walk. He invited us into his gallery,
provided us with a personal sello and asked if he could pray with us for our pilgrimage. It was a lovely moment.

The Roncesvalles sello that I posted above is from March 1989.
I figured it was quite a long time ago. In more recent years they would definitely get "writer's cramp" with the volume of pilgrims coming through their doors if they continued such an extra personal touch.
