Historically it was an important market for a variety of agricultural produce, and it manufactured linen and frieze for local trading.The history of Fonsagrada (traditional name) is linked to the pilgrimage Camino de Santiago. A variant of the Way, the Camino Primitivo, (the original path) goes through the municipality. The City Council of Burón was composed of the existing councils of Fonsagrada and Negueira de Muñiz. Subsequently, the council of Negueira de Muñiz separated from Fonsagrada. In 1943 the provincial council elected its mayor Benjamin Alvarez Fernandez to the position of prosecutor in courts in the First Legislature of the Spanish Courts (1943-1946), representing the municipalities of this province.
