“La Compostela”

The “Compostela” is granted only to those who make the pilgrimage with Christian meaning: devotionisaffectu, votivelpietatis causa (motivated by devotion, vote or piety) and only those who reach the tomb of the Apostle having traveled at least the last 100 Kilometers on foot or on horseback, 200 km by bicycle or 100 nautical miles.

The credential of the pilgrim can therefore only be issued by the Church through its own institutions (Bishopric, Parish, Guild, etc.) or authorized associations (Federation of Associations, Friends of the Camino de Santiago, etc.). Only thus can the “Compostela” be granted in the S.A. I. Cathedral of Santiago.

The Association of Pilgrims of the Sea, has been authorized to deliver the credential of the pilgrim and will attest that the bearer has done more than 100 nautical miles heading to Santiago and has walked the 23 km in the stage that goes from Padron to Cathedral.
