The access is quite easy by the road Ex-204 in both directions, coming from "Coria" or "Salamanca". Then take the road going to Nuñomoral, once you have passed "Vegas de Coria".

History

We think that the name is a compound of "Nuño" (name of a person) and moral, coming from the Latin "moralis" and a derivation of "mos-moris" what means "wish, caprice" or "habit, custom, way of living". But it can also go in a different direction with the meaning "permanent", what will get to the composed meaning of "place where Nuño lives".

It also means "Arab" what could also be logic, since there were Arabs living in these territories after the second repopulation wave from Alfonso XI.

The year of the foundation of the town is unknown, but some all the towns near "Nuñomoral" appear in the oldest documents talking about the region. "Nuñomoral" is the capital of the region named with the same name and which includes 10 Farmhouses as well as "Ladrillar" and "Casares de Hurdes".
