    I'm not coming to the Camino from home, so I will need to pick up a Pilgrim Passport en route. I will be starting the route in Leon, can anyone tell me where I can get the passport at or near here.

    Thx

    You will be able to pick one up in Leon at the Albergue attached to the Convent Santa Maria near the centre of town (I don't know about the municipal one as didn't stay there but assume you could there also). It is open from 11am each day.

    Best of Luck on your Camino

    Hello, I was a volunteer at the Benadictine convent in Le?n several summers ago. We issued passports just about every day. It's no problem. We did ask for a donation, most people left a couple of ?s. Le?n is a fine city. I hope you take the time to enjoy it.

    This is a great question, I will be needing to get one myself when I start in St. Jean de Port in France is there a place there to pick one up?

    You can get your Pilgrim Passport in St Jean from the Pilgrim Office in the High Street.

    You can get a Pilgrim Passport from the Roncesvalles Pilgrim Office and from the main albergue in Pamplona.

    The majority of "official"albergues will issue you with a Pilgrim Passport but few of the "private" albergues will keep them. The main albergues in Burgos, Leon, Ponferada, Cebriero and Sarria all issue passports.
