In the eastern foothills of the Sierra Palomera and within Campo de Visiedo, the town of Camañas emerged on the hill.
In this place was born the primitive castle , of which the towers of its perimeter remain, On one of them sits the current chapel of the Virgen del Consuelo , which was the primitive church b> of the place.
Being this, a late-Romanesque masonry factory. It has only one ship covered with wooden roof.
The semicircular head rests Romanesque remains from the 13th century.
In the 14th century the polychrome wooden roof was extended and built.
Located in the square, formed by two levels, the highest corresponds to the sacred space of the church atrium-cemetery and still retains part of its parapet; the lowest one is civic, as witnessed by the Town Hall and the Olma, we find the church; Baroque temple built in masonry.
It has a single nave with three sections covered with a half-barrel vault with lunettes and side chapels.
Stands out next to the Church, La Torre, with a slender baroque brick bell tower.
It consists of four bodies, the first two masonry and square floor and the last two octagonal brick in Baroque period.
This bell tower is of great slenderness, of the best in the region.
It is a two-storey building, of which the lower one has a market of three bays on octagonal columns. On the facade, 1914 sun clock and bank run in stonework.
This building has three heights and is built with brick masonry.
Very irregular distribution of holes, due to the successive transformations, although the balconies predominate on the main floor.
There are also several notable bars. Highlights the brick cornice above the attic ventilation windows. Large turret in the center for lighting the staircase.
At the entrance of the village coming by the road of Alfambra, is the Old Fountain.
Source-trough currently unused, of great cultural and artistic interest, dates from the seventeenth century.
Rectangular construction of ashlar topped by ashlar pediment.
Camañas also has a great landscape richness, contrasting the plains of Visiedo, where the cereal is cultivated with the foothills of Sierra Palomera,
with intense Carrascales, ravines and rugged terrain.
All this favors hunting conditions, where the quail, rabbit, hare, partridge and wild boar predominate.
The hunting activity, together with the summer seasons, significantly increases the number of visitors in the municipality, making the town an ideal place to live.
In addition, the municipality has facilities for the practice of sports such as indoor soccer, racquetball, tennis, basketball, etc. as well as mountain biking and hiking.
The latter can take advantage of the existing shelters to spend a wonderful day in the field.
Within the municipal initiatives, the construction of the Livestock Polygon stands out, where any idea of investment would be supported by the municipality.
