Toponymy and History
The place was mentioned as Lacervillera in 1280. The name is from a tree, the Speierling derived (Sorbus domestica).
Traces of prehistoric settlement have been found in the community. In 1194, the Order of Calatrava received the Kamarón Castle (now the Sta. Flora de Mas de las Matas hermitage). In 1545 a vicariate was established by the Archbishop of Saragossa . Economically, the community's ice cellars gained importance in the 16th century. In 1745 it was separated from the municipality of Monroyo . In 1840 the Second Carlist War caused damage. In 1934 anarchist committees were formed and the country was collectivized, the conquest by Francoist troops in March 1938 led to a bitter suppression of the defeated. The Maquis was fought down by 1947 , which led to the emptying of the rural area. From 2006 onwards there was an upswing, also due to immigration from Latin America.
