The aim of this monograph is to show the results of an archaeoethnological work developed in the area of As Brañas de Sar, in the surroundings of the town of Santiago de Compostela. The area comprises a basin around the Sar river that holds a traditional agrarian landscape that preserves in a fairly good shape the remains of a long time peasant work. Along with cultivation terraces and fields, a number of architectural features are scattered on the area, many of them related to the management and distribution of water. The Sar river, and the different channels, reservoirs and water mills related to it, are the basic features that shape the whole landscape here. In the very recent past, a progressive ruin of the area has begun to grew, which is visible in the abandonmet of both the river course itself and its environments. A thorough knowledge of that space would allow for a better understanding of its origins and historical value, that, in its turn, would allow a more coherent development of new uses in the area.
