Information and practical advices

Today's pilgrim has to prepare for their future "experience" carefully. One important aspect to bear in mind is the "pilgrim's credential", which can be obtained at the starting point of the pilgrimage and which will identify the pilgrim as someone who is travelling along the Way of Saint James. This credential is stamped at all the places they stop at along the Way, and thus confirms that the pilgrim has travelled the minimum length of the Way to receive a "Compostela", a certificate issued by the Oficina del Peregrino (Pilgrim's Office) at the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela to pilgrims who have walked at least the last 100 km or cycled at least the last 200 km. This credential can also be used to stay overnight in albergues (hostels).

BEFORE YOU SET OUT

PREPARATION
Practically anyone can do a pilgrimage on foot, as long as they prepare themselves properly, follow logical instructions and pace themselves in accordance with their own physical capacities. Therefore, it is a good idea to start training before setting out, by going for increasingly long walks or hikes.

PLANNING
It is also a good idea to plan in advance the stages of the route you intend to cover in advance, bearing in mind that the normal length of each stage can be 25-30 km. It is best to choose a suitable time of the year, which will vary depending on the route. If possible, it is best to avoid the cold winter or hot summer weather. Remember to start the Way with shorter stages and, as your body gets used to long walks, increase the length in line with your own abilities. It is also important to inform relatives about your travel plans before leaving and keep them updated during the trip.
