The original route leaves Guadalajara. In this case we propose Uceda, limit with the Sierra Norte de Madrid.
This road is part of the Camino de Santiago, so it's an original way of doing the Camino from the central part of the country. In this case we show you the stretch from Uceda to Guadalix.
The Mendocino Way, also known as Western Road to Santiago de Compostela, crosses natural sites and places with history of Guadalajara and Madrid. The name Mendocino refers to a part of the route being made by places that were once under the power of the Mendoza family.
The association Friends of the Camino de Santiago has set out to make known the Camino Mendocino, which also has the name of Camino Alcarreño Occidental, one of the two Jacobean alcarreña routes that allowed pilgrims to connect with the Camino de Santiago Francés.
The Mendocino Way travels almost a hundred kilometers through places of the province of Guadalajara and the north of Madrid; locations such as Torremocha de Jarama, Torrelaguna, Redueña, Venturada, Guadalix de la Sierra, Soto del Real or Manzanares el Real.
