Devesa de Rogueira is a small forest in the east of Galicia in northern Spain. It belongs to Enxeñería Forestal Asefor and the community from neighbouring mountains in Mano Común of Rogueira e Cabana. More than 70 years ago, local people decided that the value of the forest lay not in the timber they could extract from it but in the plants and animals that live here, and the ecosystem services it provided.
It is a unique natural enclave in Galicia and is managed by the people who live here. The forest is located in the UNESCO World Heritage site and offers picturesque views.
