I have not been on the site for a long time and thought I'd add a piece of information which I've just come across. The attached link is to the Almeria Jacobea site and they have produced an updated copy of their guide (June 2017) going from Almeria to Merida via Granada. It is much improved on some previous versions and I just loaded it onto my phone for reference because it has some very useful telephone numbers and other information about pilgrim accommodations. I hope this is useful. Once on the site below, scroll down the page (a little over half way) and you will find the link to download the guide (1st Edition June 2017) which is 19.5mb and in PDF. The link on the top right of the of the page under "Guia Del Camino" takes you to an earlier version of May 2017.

Buen Camino

Sorry for the confusion. The updated version is in Spanish at the moment. Having walked from Almeria to the Sanabres, the only real requirement is to have planning information like the accommodation, the phone numbers, the profiles and the route maps, all of which are readily understood from this Spanish edition. I used the O'Brien guide in English which was very useful to start but after a few hundred kilometers there was no real need. The signage is excellent and the route becomes self-evident while walking. I would say that a practical working knowledge of Spanish is essential for the Mozarabe anyway and thus armed with this Spanish guide you'll not need much more.

Thank you! No more surching for an English version. We will be there in Almeria in October. I have "a practical working knowledge of Spanish" and my husband speak Spanish, so the Spanish guide is sufficient. Looking forward to this Camino. Walking from Malaga to Córdoba in March this year, gave us the idea of walking more in South East.
