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.
