Note from the mods. I have merged two threads — the first post here has the guide in Spanish, and if you scroll down to post number 8, you will see that @Canuck has added an English translation.

Hola!

@Canuck kindly provided Spanish language guide so here it is in .pdf files attached.
Happy planning :)

I am going to translate the guide into English, but it will be a week or so before I can get to it. I have seen that several forum members are considering this route, and maybe someone will want to add to this guide, and turn it from Madrid to Uclés to a guide going Uclés to Madrid. Lots of possibilities here — like Kevin did for the Mozárabe and Lana, or Alexwalker for the San Olav, or a big bunch of us for the Invierno. When are people thinking about walking? I’m asking because if any non-Spanish speakers are going soon, I can get the translation of the (short) guide done before then.

If the route is really so well marked even in opposite direction and if you check the GPS (link in the guide) track I think there's not much chance getting lost. What I miss most are some historical facts on architecture etc. But it's a start and I'm sure the guide will get better and better.

Well, I will try to add bits and pieces. I did that with Ender’s guides when I translated them, mainly because I didn’t know what particular Spanish words meant. Some googling led me to interesting descriptions of a particular historical monument, natural feature, etc. So I will adopt the same approach here.

And I agree that it seems the likelihood of getting lost is trivial, but it is always more comfortable to read a guide that goes in the same direction as you.

If you use the GPS route provided in that guide just be mindful that it doesn't start in the church of Santiago in Madrid. It starts in Villaverde a suburb in the outskirts of the city.

True, but I meant the Ucles - Madrid direction, the rest is easy although Madrid is really big city (at least for me coming from a 300k city).

As a result of great team work between Peregrina2000, KinkyOne and Canuck, it's a pleasure to publish an English version of the Camino de Uclés guide book or information booklet.

The document is open to comments and suggestions.

Hoping that this will generate interest in this camino which deserves to be better known.

Cheers,
Jean-Marc

I walked el Camino de Uclés last year, about this time. The Camino is very well marked and Manuel who runs the whole camino is very kind. I did not enjoy as much as I enjoyed Mozarab, Salvador and Primitivo. I found the Camino de Uclés too much asphalt for me. But I liked Uclés a lot, especially the monastery there.

I must specify that it's not on regular road asphalt for the most part but on hard surface on bike ways. It's a very quiet camino away from traffic and noise.
Thanks for bringing this subject up and giving me an opportunity to clarify the situation.

Since there is so little information out there on this camino, I thought it was worth a mention that Álvaro Lazaga, on his 44th camino, is returning home to Benidorm and has just started the Camino de Uclés. I love his short videos, about 3-4 minutes a day, because they give you a good feel for the terrain and the path itself. And there are always some great personal interactions, he is really, IMO, gifted in how he can bring the camino alive.
