Credenziale del pellegrino e Diploma di pellegrinaggio (Testimonium)

The Credential or the Pilgrim Passport

What it is
The Pilgrim's Credential is a "passport" that the pilgrim fills in during his or her journey, as proof and memory of the journey he or she has made. Presenting it in the most significant stages of the journey, it is possible to receive a stamp, until the completion of the journey.
Since November 2012 it is included in the Pilgrim's Kit (see details in the related sheet below).
Who is issuing it
This credential or passport is issued to the pilgrim directly by the Association to which the pilgrim has turned for their pilgrimage, among which:
> Associazione Europea delle vie Francigene
> Fédération Française Via Francigena
> Confraternity of Pilgrims to Rome

Some associations also issue credentials by post. (See details in the web pages above)
Where you obtain the stamp in Rome
In Rome the stamp is received in the sacristy of St. Peter's Basilica.

Certificate of Pilgrimage also called Romeo or Testimonium
