The municipality of Valdenebro (122 inhabitants in 2010; 5,141 ha) is located in the southwest of Soria Province, 60 km from Soria. The municipality is made of the villages of Valdenebro (88 inh., capital) and Boós (34 inh.).

Valdenebro, once known as Val de Enebro, is the Valley (valle) planted with junipers (enebros). Remains of a Celtiberian citadel have been found on a hill located north-east of the village; some historians, for instance M. Blasco Jiménez (1909), believe that this citadel was Nortobrega / Nertrobriga / Nortobriga, listed by Ptolemy as the easternmost citadel inhabited by the Arevaci and shown on the Antonine Itinerary somewhere between Mérida and Saragossa; the citadel was seized by Consul Marcellus in 152 BC.
