Olmedo de Camaces is a village and large municipality in the province of Salamanca, western Spain, part of the autonomous community of Castile-Leon. It is located 95 kilometres (59 mi) from the provincial capital city of Salamanca and has a population of 111 people.
Camaces Olmedo, cut across the river which gives its name, honors their patron Saint, George (23 April), with bullfights, as a local tradition.
The township is bordered on the north by a quartzite hill range, bordering on Cerralbo and the former desert of Fuenlabrada.
