Nieva de Cameros

The Cordal de Serradero, which separates the Iregua Valley form the one at the Najerilla River, stretches over its area.
It has the oldest remains of the Camerano settlement, dated in the Middle Palaeolithic. In more modern times, it had other inhabited sites in this district, such as Castejón, Saint Julian and the Iregua neighbourhood, near the river, that are only a memory today.

In the latter, there was the old Venta del Hambre, which was part of the sales network for walkers and carriages that crossed the feared, in the winter, Piqueras Port, that headed to Soria (Spain).
The place is surrounded by chapels or remains of them and the toponymy reminds us places like Saint Julian, Saint Roque, Saint Eufemia, Saint Marina, Saint Theodosia, Saint Mary of the Saints or Saint Anton.

Currently, it has 96 registered inhabitants (2017 data).
Height: 1.017 m.
