With a territory of 75,19 km ² has about 7 717 inhabitants (census of 2011).
It has as highlights the village of Moncarapacho,
Solar da Farrobeira - Private construction finished quite possibly in 1737, date that appears in an inscription at the entrance of the chapel. Throughout its history, it served as a residence for an important noble and rural family of the region, but the socio-economic mutations of century XX determined its loss of function and the consequent abandonment. In 1998, already in an advanced state of degradation, it was put up for sale, and a campaign of works is expected shortly, which will inevitably adulterate the original image of the whole.See pictures
