In the words of the writer Álvaro Cunqueiro, Galicia is the country of a thousand rivers. Hence the abundance of mills throughout the territory, especially the typology of river mills. The process of grinding the cereals took a long time and often the neighbors did not have time to return home, so it was common to stay and sleep in the mill. When several people stayed throughout the night, there was never a lack of music and traditional dances. The Muíño da Muíña is a well-preserved traditional mill made from masonry walls, except for the door and window frames, which are made of stonework. The gable roof ends in a curved roof.
