Mos is a municipality in the province of Pontevedra in Galicia, Spain. Mos is adjacent to Vigo.
The Louro River floods through Mos from north to south, making the municipality a valley region.
There is no significant urban nucleus and most of the population live scattered across the municipality. Family-owned farms and vineyards are very common.
The key feature of the climate of Mos is the existence of two very different microclimates, a mountain and a valley, represented near Comber and O Porriño, respectively. The average temperature is 14.05 °C.
Mos has a high school, the IES de Mos.
Mos is home to the O Castro British School, which starts from nursery through to KS4.
Mos has a strong industry, and because of its geographical position between Vigo and the Portuguese border, it is crossed by many transport infrastructures. Recently,[when?] the announcement of the construction of a high-speed railway track and a new highway has resulted in numerous demonstrations and protests.
Since December 2008, the municipality has been governed by Nidia Arévalo, former People's Party councilor after a vote of no confidence.
Four major roads cross southern Galicia Mos: the N-550 (Tui - A Coruña), AP-9 (Atlantic Highway), the A-52 (Vigo, Ourense) and A-55 (Vigo-Portugal).
Vigo Airport (VGO) is partially in the boundaries of Mos.
