Description

The construction of the Salime dam in the 1960s has divided the municipality of Negueira de Muñiz from north to south, which has increased the isolation of the right bank and led many people to abandon the area. The municipality which carries the surname of the promoter of its administrative independence as a municipality is now the least populated of Galicia, with less than three hundred inhabitants.
Its recent history is complicated by the fact that the territory is very rough and uneven, full of beautiful contrasting sceneries. There are luxuriant forests dominated by oak trees, but in the valley where the mountain climate becomes more benign cork trees and even grapevines flourish.
