New Pilgrims Office in Santiago de Compostela

new-pilgrim-office-santiago-de-compostela-caminoThe Pilgrims Office in Santiago de Compostela (Oficina de Acogida al Peregrino) has moved to a new home, just a few minutes away from the cathedral and Praza do Obradoiro in the centre of the city.

While there are still some works taking place due to be completed by Summer 2016; volunteers and staff are now receiving pilgrims from this fantastic new centre.

The Pilgrims Office in Santiago is a welcoming centre for pilgrims completing the Camino. It is here where you will get the final stamp for your pilgrim passport (credencial) and where you will be able to request your pilgrimage certificate, known as ‘Compostela‘; as well as the certificate of distance.

Camino pilgrims arriving in Santiago de Compostela from now on should head to the new Pilgrims Office, located at the following address:

Rúa Carretas, 33
CP 15705
Santiago de Compostela

*Please note that until all the refurbishment works are completed, pilgrims can access the Pilgrims Office by the door on Rua Garcia Sabell

For additional information and the latest updates, we recommend you visit their website: Pilgrims Office in Santiago or by phone on  +34 981 56 88 46.


The Pilgrims Office in Santiago receives pilgrims nearly every day of the year.

In winter-time (1st November until 30th April, except Easter), the office is open every day from 10am to 7pm.

During Easter Week (Semana Santa) and from 1st May until 30th October, the office receives pilgrims from all over the world from 8am to 9pm.

The centre is only closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, when pilgrims can request their certificates directly from the Cathedral.
