Yellow arrows, milestones, pilgrim shells, cathedrals, sculptures… any element that represents the Camino de Santiago can be a part of the new photographic contest active now on our Facebook page.
There are as many Caminos as there are pilgrims. Today we talk about the routes of the Camí de Sant Jaume and the work of Catalonian associations to integrate these pilgrimage routes, making them successful in the coming years.
During the winter season the Camino de Santiago receives fewer visitors and, thus, some services are affected. Find out everything you need to know in this article.
The Correos Pre-paid Card lets pilgrims recharge money whenever they need it, pay hotel services, withdraw money from ATMs or make safe online purchases.
Muchos peregrinos realizan el Camino sobre dos ruedas. Si todavía no sabes cómo enviar tu bici en el Camino de Santiago, CORREOS tiene a disposición de los peregrinos: el Paq Bicicleta.
The III photographic competition of Correos and iPeregrinos is already underway seeking to reflect on the beauty of the different routes and the many hues that characterize the Camino de Santiago.
The Tarjeta del Camino Portugués consists of a postcard tracing the Portuguese route with its various stages and space for seven special stamps bearing the unique landmarks found at each of the towns.
Correos has launched the 1st Call for Mail Art on the Camino de Santiago. You can send you art (created using any technique you like) to Post Office Box No. 18, Santiago de Compostela, CP 15702.
¡Buen Camino! This is our wish at Correos! – that pilgrims can fully enjoy their Camino and discover new places, histories, people and experiences through our postcards.
