How to obtain the "Compostela"

Those who manage to reach Santiago unaided, during any year, are awarded the Compostela, a certificate issued by the Pilgrim Office to certify that the route has been travelled due to religious reasons. It is given to pilgrims that cover the last 100 kilometres on foot or horseback, or last 200 kilometres in the case of cyclists. In both cases, they have to present the official Pilgrim Document provided by the Catholic church with one or more daily stamps from the shelters or parishes visited along any of the routes.
