Tourist information:

This is the most northerly parish in the municipality and the lowest point in the council with respect to sea level, 80 metres, which here is marked by the confluence of the rivers Deza and Ulla. It represents the boundary with the province of A Coruña.

Historically, in the 18th century, it had its own jurisdiction of the same name, integrating parishes on the banks of the river such as Dornelas, Lamela, Añobre, Bascuas and Gres.

In civil architecture the Casa de Paizás stands out, the estate was founded in 1717, and especially Cira Tower, which was built in 1115 by Count Xoán Bermudo Suarez and was seized by Queen Urraca, who in 1121 captured by surprise Archbishop Xelmírez who endured imprisonment  for several days within its walls. It has been declared of cultural interest.

In terms of agriculture it is called the "Garden of Trasdeza", with a significant production of horticultural crops such as beans, tomatoes, peppers and apples, which occupy an important part of the parish. Also flowers, which are grown throughout the year and is a booming industry due to its quality.

Cira forms part of the Ulla – Deza River System, a site of communal Importance integrated and protected by the Natura 2000 network.
