The Credential certifies the status of “pilgrim”
Pilgrim is the one who goes to a place of Christian worship, with the intention to strengthen their faith and wants to make an important human and spiritual experience. The Credential committed the applicant to a respectful behavior towards those who provide hospitality and to those he meets along the way.
It grants access to the “Hostels”, shelters for pilgrims; it allows to obtain benefits where there is an agreement between operator and Association Via Romea Germanica.
The Credential shows the place and date of departure and the place and date of arrival, the stamps of the encountered resorts and hospitality facilities, demonstrating the path you travel.
And it is a valid document to obtain a certificate at the end of the pilgrimage: the “Testimonium” once you arrive in Rome.
It can only be used by those who make the pilgrimage on foot, by bicycle or on horseback.
This document is issued by the Association “Via Romea Germanica” by the Postal Service, at the request of the pilgrim to the email [email protected]
Our Credential is numbered, staff and registered.
