- The minimum distance you need to cover to get your certificate is 100km. The most popular route is from Sarria to Santiago. Just don't forget to get your passport stamped along the way (this can be picked up from Sarria)
- Don't eat the famous octopus, whatever anyone tells you. Do eat everything else in sight - you've earned it, and Galician food is divine.
- Be sure to try some of the local Albariño wines - Paco & Lola is a beautiful choice, and easily found. Look out for the funky dotty bottle.
