The pilgrims' pass is one of the most important documents that a pilgrim needs to carry. It is, of course, possible, as anywhere else, to walk the Way of St James without a pass. But then without it pilgrims would not be eligible for many of the main benefits (e.g. inexpensive meals and accommodation in the pilgrims' hostels). We strongly recommend that all pilgrims obtain a pass.
