This route is not that known, but I decided to add it to the forum. Here are some links to some more information on this route:

From Peter Robin's site:
http://www.peterrobins.co.uk/camino/routes/lana.html

In the spring of 1624 three pilgrims left their tiny village near Cuenca and set out for Santiago. They were Francisco Patiño, his wife María de Franchis and Francisco´s cousin Sebastián de la Huerta. Their motive for going to the tomb of the apostle was very personal; they wished to give thanks to God for a miraculous escape from a fire that engulfed their home the previous year. That they were alive, Francisco believed, was due to the miraculous intervention of Santiago himself. Midday of 22 April they arrived at the Cathedral of Santiago. Their route had taken near Monteagudo as well as Santo Domingo de Silos before they joined the Camino Francés at Burgos. That we know of their pilgrimage, its motives and their itinerary is because these were recorded both by Francisco´s employer, the Duke of Modena, and by the ecclesiastical authorities at Santiago cathedral. On 2 May this little family group left the cathedral to return to their village, a distance of some 500 miles.

Can I add a blog which I have started which has GPS routes for the Ruta de La Lana? I walked it this year - 2013 - and found it wonderful. There was plenty of help from Amigos del Camino
along the Way. The blog is here: http://www.the-raft-of-corks.com/blog/.

Oh, so, so, so..........uhm - "For the first time, too, I felt solitude, the solitude which is the opposite of aloneness. I merge and become part of the world around me. My surroundings surround me and incorporate me. " - that's the quote from your second day and it got me all and whole! Thank you so much for your blog. I guess this night I'm gonna lack some sleep :D

Thanks, for that. I've just seen your reply. I am glad this spoke to you. There are so many experiences we share on the Camino that are not easily available in "the world".
Here's a wierd one: http://www.the-raft-of-corks.com/blog/camino-de-levante-oranges-word-theresa-lisieux/

All the best, John

Thanks for the new section, Ivar. This is another route on my "watch list." I know one person who has walked it, but says that before Cuenca there are (or were, maybe this has changed) no arrows. Good to have a place for people to exchange information on this route.

BTW, mundicamino now has information on stages for the Lana.

There are arrows all the way now, Laurie. But here are GPS files to download from Alicante to Cuenca:
http://www.the-raft-of-corks.com/bl...-ruta-de-la-lana-gpx-files-maps-places-sleep/
The up to date albergue information is in progress, but the routes are fine.

The page above has been updated with more contact telephones and a map with gpx of the route between Campillo de Altobuey and Monteagudo de Salinas. This route is different from the route on Mundicamino but is the one which is marked with the yellow arrows.

Here is another link to a specific part of the route, the Canyon of Caracena. This is in the middle of one of the longest parts of this Camino with few facilities. It passes through Soria which is the least poulated province in Spain and this part is isolated. http://www.the-raft-of-corks.com/blog/canyon-caracena-ruta-de-la-lana/

GPS and map, Retortilla de Soria to Fresno de Caracena.

Good afternoon Laurie,
I wanted to signal an impressive Camino addict, probably known to most of you, he described his recent (April-May 2015) Camino de la Lana from Valencia in his blog. Only limitation, it is written in Spanish and French.
http://peregrinopatxi.blogspot.co.uk/
He is a long distance walker, his days are all above 45 km, large proportion are 50; he says having walked 68 km in one day to reach Cuenca ! This is tremendous. He walks with very minimal rucksack (5 to 7 kg), for several weeks. Minimal comfort...
Well I know where to set the limits,
Kind Regards

Hi, Julio, Yes, I have seen some of peregrino Bat's writings. In fact, I stayed with Rosi in Fasgar on the Olvidado not long after he did and heard a lot about him! My friends and family all think I'm an extreme camino nut case, and it's always nice to be able to point to people like him to show that MY camino addiction is well under control compared to his. :) Buen camino, Laurie

There is a recent new variant from Valencia-Cheste-Chiva-Requena joining Ruta de la Lana in Monteagudo de Salina. I know this region from Valencia to Requena. It is a sort of family land for me...
