    What is a Credential in the Via Francigena? image

    The pilgrim's credential, together with the Testimonium, is the fundamental documents for the pilgrim. 

    The credential is a kind of "identity card", certifying that the person in possession is making a pilgrimage to a place of worship. It should always be carried in order for you to be identified as a genuine pilgrim and to grant access to refuges. Your credential can be stamped in every place that you stay during your journey.

    The credential will allow the pilgrim to receive the Testimonium - certifying completion of the pilgrimage – from the appropriate religious authority.
