“I would like to congratulate those who have helped to make this website, which will inform and accompany pilgrims to the Tomb of St. James. With my best wishes and blessing of the Lord!”. Julián Barrio. Archbishop of Santiago
At the Santiago de Compostela Pilgrim’s Reception Office we welcome pilgrims who come to the city on foot, by bicycle or on horseback to the tomb of St. James.
The Pilgrim’s Reception Office is run by the Cathedral of Santiago, in the Archdiocese of Santiago de Compostela, and this is where we place the final stamp of the Cathedral of Santiago on the “credenciales de peregrino” (pilgrim’s credentials) and where the traditional pilgrimage certificate is issued, called the “Compostela”.
