LALÍN, with an area of 326.8 km2, is the fourth largest municipality in Galicia and enjoys a privileged location in the centre of the Deza region. Its geographical location, in the so-called “Kilometre Zero of Galicia,” has made this municipality an important logistics enclave due to its centrality. Its territory is divided into 51 parishes, with 20,409 inhabitants (2012 Census).

Located 46 km from the capital of Galicia, with which it is linked by road via the N-525 road (daily bus service by the Monbus company) and the AP-53 motorway, and by rail thanks to the A Coruña – Ourense line, with several daily services (train timetables at Renfe).

This municipality has a highly diversified economy. In addition to traditional agricultural and stockbreeding activities, a diversified industrial sector has arisen in recent decades, especially in the textile field. Being the regional capital, Lalín also features business and service activities, apart from the primary and secondary sectors.
