What is the Pilgrims Credencial?

The credential, also known as the “pilgrim’s passport” or “credencial del peregrino” in Spanish, is a document that serves as both a record of your journey and a means of identification along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage routes.The credential contains your personal details, including your name and nationality. It serves as a form of identification, especially when staying in pilgrim accommodations (albergues) along the Camino.
You can obtain a credential from various sources before starting your Camino journey. These include pilgrim associations, churches, hostels, tourist offices, and some online resources such as Casa Ivar.
