We receive the “Compostela” in the Pilgrim’s Office
We suggest that you visit the inside of the cathedral at noon, when the Pilgrim’s Mass begins. Before that, you can go to the Pilgrim’s Office to leave your backpack in the baggage check and make it more comfortable to get around the city.
In the Office, you can also seal the “pilgrim credentials”, which you will also be able to get discounts in some of the places you visit and request the traditional pilgrimage certificate, the famous mediaeval “Compostela”. It’s awarded to those who have travelled the last 100 kilometres of the Way on foot or by horseback, or the last 200 miles on a bicycle and who state, at least, that it was done for religious reasons. The Office is located near the Obradoiro, in the Rúa do Vilar, adjacent to the cathedral’s Praterías square.
