In the middle of the riversides of The Órbigo river, with Teso Grande as the highest point, this farming town of 240 inhabitants, is still gazing how the Roman road passes blurred and faded, the opposite of the St James way case. The cattle route Dehesa de la Vizana has almost the same poverty, which had a stopping place and the starting point of the shepperding tracks of Saludes and Caznuecos. If we speak about the communication routes in Maire, the closure of the Astorga-Plasencia railway was even more regrettable.

Maire, which was founded with the population of the formerly inhabitated Herreros, makes its living from agriculture and from the memory of better times, although it belonged to the feudal state of Castroponce. It lives with the scent of its land, the broom of Mount La Vizaina, the pool of the lagoons Grande Matayeguas, Sendero Lobo and Olleros; it lives with its traditional architecture of adobe, carried out in two levels, with first tile eaves, and large gates with eaves, surrounded by dovecots and wine cellars distributed in the surroundings. At least Maire lives in peace.
