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.
