Should we get euros before we leave home for the Camino de Santiago?

Euros on the Camino de Santiago

The question was:

We are leaving in two weeks for St. Jean. Wanted to see what others were doing in order to prepare their money…

Rates are high here in USA to exchange before we leave and out bank charges 3.5% plus $5 per transaction. Any ideas to get a better exchange rate?
