Just right outside the bucolic little town of Pontevedra, a beautiful pazo (a typical Galician country mansion) is the outpost for the bank of life. This is the headquarters of the Misión Biológica of Galicia, founded in early 1921, which is dedicated to the research, preservation and cataloguing of hundreds of vegetable species of seeds. This very same bank, which is known as Germoplasm, is the most important one in Spain, It has stored and preserved for many years already extinct-species of seeds. Corn, green, vegetables, leguminous plants and pulses and grape vines are the main four divisions of this groundbreaking catalog, which is alive in the plants of Galicia.
