Cerdido 43°37′26.87″N 7°59′42.69″W / 43.6241306°N 7.9951917°W / 43.6241306; -7.9951917 is a city council of Ferrolterra in North-western Spain in the Province of A Coruña, in the autonomous community of Galicia. Ferrolterra's population represents the third largest concentration of people in Galicia, and its disperse population exceeds 211,000 (2005).


Farming and timber production, together with services, are the main economic activities. Wind-mill parks are common in Ferrolterra, particularly in the boroughs of Carino, Cedeira and A Capelada.


Due to its geographical proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, Cerdido does not have extreme oscillation in its weather conditions in winter or in summer. The weather is mild year-round, unlike the weather in other parts of the Iberian Peninsula. Like the rest of Galicia, it is rainy and beautifully green, and unlike other parts of Ferrolterra, in winter time snow can be found in most parts of the borough.
