Lires village

Domingo Díaz Docampo presents his latest documentary entitled "O Desafío do Sil" (1), a historical tour on the construction of dams by the company Saltos del Sil (1945-1965) that forever changed the silhouette of Valdeorras and also the way of life of its neighbours.
This documentary contains unpublished images of the film “Lires"  of great historical value for our village.


“Lires", by Francisco De la Calle, was filmed by the Agrarian Extension Service in the 1960s and received awards in several international competitions. This 20-minute film shows the village of Lires vertebrated by a unpaved road, without water supply or an electricity network in many places. The unity of the neighbours made it possible to start up several works that substantially improved the quality of life of the villagers,  the first of which was the water supply system to   provide all houses  with running water.


Both documentaries, "El Desafío del Sil" and "Lires", highlight the social and economic change that these works brought about in rural areas.

DID YOU KNOW ? THE SEVERITY OF COVID-19 IS FAR FROM OTHER PANDEMIES

With this post we resume the activity in our blog. It is a different post from the usual ones, and it was born with the aim of providing calmness in the face of the pandemic we are experiencing due to COVID-19. History can help us put into perspective what is happening with the current pandemic and, although it may seem otherwise, the severity of this outbreak appears to be far from the deadliest outbreaks. There have always been and there will always be epidemics. It is part and parcel of nature. We need to be aware of it, and lea…
