  1. Minho River

    Minno river, Minho or Miño is the longest river in Galicia, Spain, with an extension of 340 km. The name comes from Latin Minius, meaning cinnibar, lead, or vermillion, essentially, "the red river." The Minno waters vineyards and farmland, is used to produce hydroelectric power, and also delineates a section of the Spanish/Portuguese border. In ancient English maps appears as Minno. The source of the Minho lies about 50 km north of Lugo in Galicia, in a place called Pedregal of Irimia. The river passes just south of the walls of this old Roman city and flows south through canyons until the valley widens north of Ourense. The river has been harnessed in reservoirs from Portomarín to Frieira. In its length it has the following reservoirs: Belesar with 654 hm³, Peares with 182 hm³, Velle with 17 hm³, Castrelo with 60 hm³ and Frieira with 44 hm³. Twenty kilometers north of Ourense at Os Peares the Minho receives the waters of its main tributary, the Sil. Passing Ourense, the river flows in a southwest direction until reaching the Portuguese border near Melgaço. There is one major dam at Frieira near the town of Ribadavia, which is famous for its Ribeiro wine.
