Located in the mountain of Lugo, Becerreá presents a very rugged terrain, framed within the set of Eastern Sierras of Galicia, its steep relief is characterized by its versatility.

It limits to the north with the municipalities of Baleira and Navia de Suarna, to the south with As Nogais and Triacastela, to the east with Cervantes and to the west with Baralla and Láncara.

The Region of Os Ancares is located in the eastern sector of the province of Lugo constituting, next to the neighboring counties of Fonsagrada and Quiroga, the high mountain of Lugo.

It forms part of what could be considered a great natural region of interregional character: Galicia, León and Asturias, with natural and ethnographic peculiarities that distinguish it perfectly from the adjacent areas that are Serra do Courel, Depression of Sarria and Comarca de la Fonsagrada .

Some sources locate in Becerreá the pre-Roman town of the Zoelas, placing its capital in the present Oselle (Ocellum Galaicorum). The linen was well known in Rome, used for clothing and for healing wounds.

The City of Becerreá has an area of ??172.1 km²; the population is basically concentrated in Becerreá, municipal capital, which has a territorial area of ??3.1 km².

The most important axis of communication is the motorway A-6 Madrid-A Coruña, which crosses the city council from east to west and gives a valuable accessibility to Lugo capital, of which is 44 km.
