Registration for the 2019 Ribadiso Welcome Service is now open!

 American Pilgrims announces the 2019 Ribadiso Welcome Service, a volunteer opportunity at the Albergue of Ribadiso do Baixo. Volunteering at Ribadiso is a unique experience. Volunteers care for the pilgrims by welcoming them to the albergue, answering their questions, providing information about the immediate area and about their arrival to Santiago and offering a listening ear. Sound interesting?

American Pilgrims Local Chapters

Are you aware that American Pilgrims has 50 local chapters? If you're still in the planning stages of your Camino or if you're a veteran peregrino, you should see if you live near one. For not-yet-veterans, local chapter events are the perfect way to learn what you need to know before leaving. For veterans, local chapters are the perfect way to keep the spirit of the Camino alive. Every chapter has a local flavor, but walks, talks, coffees and dinners are common to all
Check out the map on the Local Chapters page then contact a chapter near you.
