Did you know that... Villoslada de Cameros

 

It is located in the heart of the Sierra Cebollera, in the high course of the river Iregua. There are signs that the area may have been populated since the second century, although the first reference we have of Villaoslada or Villoslada today, is in a document of the fourteenth century, when Enrique de Trastámara was handed over to Pedro Manrique, thus being linked to the Duchy of Nájera until 1811, the year in which the lordships were abolished.

What to see in Villoslada de Cameros?

 

Some popular architecture buildings of the sixteenth century and large houses of the eighteenth century, make Villoslada have an interesting architectural urban center. In the upper part of the village is the Parish Church of Nuestra Señora del Sagrario, built in the seventeenth century and taking advantage of the remains of the previous Romanesque church, XI-XII centuries, and of which we can still contemplate the tower, the entrance door to the church, the baptismal font as well as some canecillos and its walls before and after. Also noteworthy is the Hermitage of Lomos de Orio, 9 km. from the village and managed by an administrative board elected by popular vote among the people of Villoslada. It is of the century. XVIII and built in masonry. In the Cerro de San Cristóbal we find a stela or Roman tombstone with Celtiberian and Roman inscriptions from the II-III centuries A.D.

To discover

 

Mention apart for being a unique case in the Sierra due to its antiquity, seventeenth century, and size, and with more than 2000 square meters, deserves the Royal Fabric Factory where they washed wool and made merino wool fabrics. After enjoying the village, we can take pleasant walks around the surroundings, as Villoslada also gives us the opportunity to walk along its paths, such as La Dehesa, which, starting from places close to the San Miguel Hermitage, brings us closer to the Roman Stela and returns to the village in a route of about 9 km. The path of the Virgin, which from the fronton and after about two and a half hours of walking takes us to the Hermitage of Lomos de Orio. The path of Achichuelo and of course the one of Puente Ra that brings us closer to the beautiful waterfalls. But if we want to feel the freedom of the summits we can ascend to Cueva Grande and from there we can go crest and approach La Mesa del Cebollera, Cebollera, Telégrafo....
