Nieva de Cameros

6 · The Castle

It is the only castle in the region. Above the village rises a rock that is crowned with this defensive construction, unique in the Cameros, although there are other terms of a defensive nature in the toponymy, as in the case of the neighbouring Viguera. It probably had other exterior defences that would adapt to the contour of the castle.
The site was related to the Lords of Cameros (XII century) and later to the Counts of Nieva (XV century).
At present, the castle is complicated to reach, due to the state of the path, narrow and with a steep slope.
