Which is, in your opinion, the best "sello" you have ever received ? Both considering the esthetic and the difficulty in obtaining it.
Two days ago, I got the ultimate sello from Carlos Pinheiros at Albergue Pinheiros in Alvaiazere. It took about ten minutes for him to do. It has a brass scallop shell, and a brass key, and a red ribbon. Onto these he drips three different colours of heated wax, and then a big circle with three different colours of melting wax, then he Stamos that circle. Then he drips melting wax, in a circuit around the page representing your steps to Santiago. Everyone at the albergue was photographing the entire process including me. Unfortunately, I am not good enough with Smartphones to show a photo here. My phone is definitely smarter than me.Which is, in your opinion, the best "sello" you have ever received ?

These are links to the images:On my pilgrimages on the St Olavs Ways, where places didn't have stamps, I asked for a drawing, and was never disappointed. When I look at these little drawings I have a much more vivid memory of that day and the circumstances than other days.
The obvious answer for me is the Cathedral cello which appears twice on each of my completed passports. It is a symbol of the result of the completed pilgrimage.Which is, in your opinion, the best "sello" you have ever received ? Both considering the esthetic and the difficulty in obtaining it.
I love this one @Rebekah Scott ! I walked my first Camino using Don Elias's Camino guide - a copy borrowed from my mother-in-law and which Don Elias had signed for Barbara on her own 1985 Camino. If I have any regrets about that first Camino it is probably that I arrived in O Cebreiro a few months too late to meet the man himself.I like the new sello for Albergue Elias Valina in Canfranc, an adaptation from a full-on Icon created last year by California pilgrim-artist Melissa West for the new albergue.
