Pilgrim's Credentials

The Pilgrim’s Credentials is a traveling document that pilgrims carry with them during their walk. By presenting it at accommodations, rest stops, tourist offices and parishes, pilgrims can receive a stamp from each place. Stop after stop, this special passport will fill up, attesting to and intangibly capturing the spirit of the journey.

Pilgrims can purchase their Credentials online at viefrancigene.org or in the distribution points located along the route.
