Nieva de Cameros
tipo de documento semantico destination
Nieva de Cameros is a municipality in the autonomous region of La Rioja, in the basin formed by the River Iregua and in the district of Camero Viejo. It is 41 km from Logroño along the N-111 road (towards Soria), in the heart of the Cameros Mountains. Residents mainly farm, particularly animals (cattle, horses and sheep), but they also grow enough food for their own consumption (green beans, chard, courgettes, lettuce, etc.). There are many paths and routes that can be taken from this small village, as it is well connected to other municipalities in the same mountain range and also with municipalities in other mountain chains, such as Anguiano. This village can be reached on the GR-93 footpath. The recently renovated La Casa Nueva Inn is a wonderful starting point from which to enjoy these paths and the area's many other attractions. The village of Montemediano is also part of the municipality. Website.
