I am seeking advise on the Camino Madrid, including, stages, accommodations, also would it be crowded in mid August? Any information or links to guides would be of help.

I doubt it would be crowded, but it would definitely be HOT. I fried in late September last year.

There is lots of information on the forum in the Camino de Madrid section. For recent information on accommodations and facilities available in the towns along the route, consult this thread: Camino de Madrid April 2019 updates . I am planning my Camino de Madrid for this fall and have purchased a Pilgrim Guide to this route from The Confraternity of St James.

You will find one by the Iglesia de San Juan Bautista but then nothing until Plaza de Castilla. It's a very nice walk from the church where you can also pick up their special credential. Use the search function as there is much information here on the Forum.

A few and hopefully lots more. See signature.
Sorry I can’t read Spanish
Hi @rba, the best online resources for the Camino de Madrid are in Spanish. If you use Google Chrome as your browser, it will automatically translate the Ray y Rosa site and Gronze for you.

The CSJ guide has a lot of useful information - I found it very helpful when researching this route. I mostly used Gronze when I was walking as it has regularly updated information on albergues etc.

There are lots of threads here about stages and accommodation. @jungleboy's thread (quoted above) is particularly helpful, but there are many others.

I really enjoyed the Camino de Madrid. It needs minimal planning, as there's plenty of accommodation.

I have bussed and trained it back to Madrid a couple of times, having finished or part-finished other caminos. I have observed the terrain north of Madrid through which the CM meanders, and often wondered: 'What is the attraction?' And I am someone who loved the meseta...
The mountains immediately north to the capital look interesting, but thereafter it seems pretty featureless. And not a lot of trees.
Opinions from those who have done it? It may tempt me to try another Spanish pilgrimage one day...

I saw the CdM as being roughly divided, landscape-wise, into three different parts of similar lengths. The first part is going towards and over the mountains, the second part is through a lot of pine forests and the final part is Meseta. But as always, landscape is only one part of a camino. Check out my photos in the link in my signature if you want a better idea of what it’s like.
