Asociación Neria is an association, formed on 9 May 1992 after the initiative of a group of mayors from Costa da Morte, who saw a need for joint efforts to fight for the overall development of the area.
Its main activity is the socioeconomic development of the territory it covers, fighting for the welfare of its people and improving their quality of life. To do this, it disseminates information, training and awareness to all people, especially youth, so they can make a future here in our land and not have to resort to emigration.
Asociación Neria is an organization with extensive experience in the field of rural development, since its main purpose is to promote and coordinate rural development, improving living conditions and help to stop the depopulation of rural areas. In this regard Asociación Neria has been increasingly unfolding actions and covering more areas.
The area of activity of Asociación Neria, that comprises 17 municipalities, has plenty of resources that need to be strengthened to promote its development. This requires further for promotion job creation, both as self as private, and entrepreneurship.
In this sense Asociación Neria has been functioning all these years as an engine for cultural, social, touristic and economic initiatives, throughout all the geography, and vitally contributed to the development of the region and progress of its society. It has developed important initiatives, invigorating proposals and provided benefits for all inhabitants —in a way or another— with its vocation for social service as it was conceived in the beginning.
costa da morte
The name of Costa da Morte comes from the ancient belief that Fisterra was the end of the earth and the point at which there was no navigation possible to the West. It goes from Fisterra Cape to Malpica.
According to the ancient Greeks and Celtic tradition, it was also the region where the sun disappears every day, driving the boat of Charon, filled with souls that Hermes (Saint Roque) gathered in small churches (hermitages) to the country of the dead that the Sun God is able to pass through in order to appear every new day.
The Costa da Morte extends in the northwest of the Iberium Peninsula, comprising the municipalities of Cabana de Bergantiños, Camariñas, Carnota, Cee, Corcubión, Coristanco, Dumbría, Fisterra, Laxe, Malpica de Bergantiños, Mazaricos, Muros, Muxía, Ponteceso, Santa Comba, Vimianzo and Zas. It is a land of legends about buried cities, of healers who work miracles, superstitions and great devotions.
A country scattered with Romanesque churches, pazos, castles and megalithic monuments surrounded by a generous nature. It is the end of Europe, where the sea beats a landscape of steep cliffs, islets and rocks that serve huge natural protection to a land coveted by their wealth and looted over the centuries, vikings, pirates, and English and French squadrons… scene of shipwrecks and sinkings, in a land that, above all, is a symbol of life.
A land inhabited since antiquity by courageous and generous people that have managed to bring out the best that nature gave them demanding and developing a culture around it, which make live intensely a time that passes by slowly.
