This town was formerly known as Las Calabazas and its present name dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. The area has known much depopulation during the last few decades, so that a number of alquerías (small settlements of a few houses), like Casas de Jelechoso, Arrocartintero and Arrocerezo, lie now abandoned.

A number of archaeological discoveries have been made around Caminomorisco, in Arrocerezo, Vamesto, Cugoso, Los Tesitos and La Coronita; the finds include ancient Iberian petroglyphs (ídolos-placa), prehistoric steles (ídolos-estela) and other smaller inscribed stones. There are also remains from Roman times in El Alcornocal, La Cebaílla, Valle Clara, Los Tesoros and El Minuero.


The following alquerías are within Caminomorisco's municipal limits (traditional name variants are in brackets):

  • Aceña (L’Aceña)
  • Arrocerezo (Arrocerezu)
  • Arrofranco (Arrofrancu)
  • Arrolobos (Arrolobus)
  • Cambrón
  • Cambroncino (Cambroncinu)
  • Dehesilla (La Jesilla)
  • Huerta (La Güerta, pronounced "La Gwerta")
  • Riomalo de Abajo (Riomalu d’Abaju)
