The Route of Santiago de Compostela is full of unforgettable moments that make each step of the Way a unique experience. We know it because postmen and women and pilgrims have shared the same roads for centuries. In CORREOS, we want you to enjoy the experience and that is why we offer you anything you may need before, during or after the Camino.
Do you want to travel to your starting point without a care?
Are you planning to stay on for a short holiday after you finish the Camino and you need some extra stuff?
Before you leave home, you can send a suitcase to the Correos office where you want to finish your pilgrimage with everything you need. We will keep it there for you until you arrive.
Do you want to do the Camino without carrying a rucksack? Are you cycling and you do not want to take pannier bags?
We will take you rucksack or suitcase from section to section with our Paq Mochila.
You do not want to take a lot of cash or your credit cards on the Camino?
You can get our prepaid card and just take the money you transfer to it for payments or withdrawals. It works just like a debit card, but it is not linked to any bank account.
What if you want to buy something along the Way or get rid of some of the contents of your rucksack?
You can send parcels from any of our offices or from many hostels, hotels or Tiendas Amigas where they have boxes to send your parcel.
Are you going to visit Santiago Cathedral?
Rucksacks are not allowed inside the Cathedral. You can leave yours in our LOCKERS at Rúa do Franco, (150 metres away from the Cathedral) to enjoy the city without a care. We also store your bicycle or trekking pole.
You do not want to check-in or carry your suitcase, bicycle or trekking pole when you finish the Camino?
You can send all these things by post with Correos and they will be home when you arrive. We have our own Pilgrim's Office at the Rúa do Franco (150 metres away from the Cathedral) and another one at the Official Pilgrim’s Office at Calle Carretas.
We have over one hundred offices on the Way where we can help you and also stamp your Credencial. Many of them have special stamps related to the Camino.
In Santiago de Compostela, in our office at Rúa do Franco, 4 (150 metres away from the Cathedral) we will help you:
• Send your bicycle to any destination in Spain and Europe.
• Send your suitcase, rucksack or trekking pole back home.
• Collect your suitcases and parcels sent from Roncesvalles or any other point.
• Use our lockers.
• Send any type of parcel
