Flag of Acebedo - Image by Antonio Gutiérrez (VexiLeón website), 29 May 2011
The municipality of Acebedo (225 inhabitants in 2015; 5,018 ha; unofficial website) is located in the mountains (1,160 m) of the northeast of the Province of León, 90 km of León. The municipality is made of the villages of Acebedo, Liegos (65 inh.) and La U&btilde;a (48 inh.).
Acevedo was mentioned for the first time in 1020, as Aceveto, on a parchment kept in the Cistercian monastery of Otero de las Dueñas; the name of the village comes from acebo, "hollow", a plant commonly found in the neighbouring mountains.
