Compostela and Pilgrim Stamps

A Compostela (certificate of completion) is available for the Augustine Camino. The rules are similar to those for Santiago ie you must walk at least 100km (the length of the Augustine Camino) and collect at least seven pilgrim stamps (one for each leg of the walk). The Compostela is available from St Augustine’s in Ramsgate for a small fee.

Augustine Camino stamps are recognised in Santiago for a Compostela on the Camino de Santiago.
