Basic History[edit]

Camaces Olmedo, cut across the river which gives its name, honors their patron Saint, George (23 April), with bullfights, as a local tradition.[3]

The township is bordered on the north by a quartzite hill range, bordering on Cerralbo and the former desert of Fuenlabrada.

The Picon de Olmedo, at a height of 797 metres (2,615 ft) and the Cerro de San Jorge, at a height of 825 metres (2,707 ft), are among the highest altitudes of the region.

At the base-line of these hills lie the landscapes of the 'peneplain' and 'charro' field. The meadow is oak-lined -and cattle herds of 'Morucha' graze on this meadow.


The municipality covers an area of 91 km2 (35 sq mi). It lies 713 metres (2,339 ft) above sea level and the post code is 37292.
