I picked up a brochure last year called CaminodeSantiago Digital that lists a number of useful links on the camino in the region of Castilla y Leon. (Redicilla del Camino to about Villafranca del Bierzo).
On one you can buy camino products like cheese and wine, chorizo and honey on line. The website includes recipes, lists of producers, a forum etc.

Another useful site is which has an English link to info on the Camino Frances, Via de la Plata and the Camino Madrid in Castilla y Leon. It has a click on, inter-active map that leads to all sorts of info.

Then there is peregrine@alerta which is a site with info on ‘mobility services on the camino’. There are English links on the information and Guia pages.
What is it?
Peregrine@ alerta is an initiative developed by the Regional Government of Castile and Leon within the Digital Rural Community program offering different mobile services to support pilgrims, citizens and visitors to the Route of Santiago as it crosses our Community. With these services the user will be able to obtain different types of information, such as that relating places, hostels, news, etc.

At the moment peregrine@ alerta offers users the following services:
