Villoslada de Cameros

4 · The Houses

The houses are located in height on a sunny hill and can be reached through slopes and stairs. Several typologies coexist:
On the one hand, the popular architecture that leverages the masonry work on the ground floor and which, with wooden framework supports the upper floor made of adobe, brick or stone. Access is through doors with rounded arches in stone masonry.
On the other hand and adorning their facades, the large buildings display shields of illustrious families with Camerano surnames belonging to the Solar de Tejada.
And finally and as the most outstanding buildings, the houses built by local emigrants who travelled to Chile and Argentina at the beginning of the XXth century and who have left their mark as “houses of Indianos”.
