Queso Camerano DOP

      Camerano PDO













Goat’s milk cheese made from the Serrana, Murciana-Granadina, Malagueña, Alpina breeds and their cross-breeds, made with pasteurized or untreated milk and undergoing different periods of ageing depending on the type being made. A distinctive feature of Camerano cheese is its series of external marks, produced by the “cilla”, the molds used to shape the cheese; they are made from plaited cane and leave their imprints on the outside of the cheese.
