Corcubión, or Corcubiom in the AGAL orthography of the Galician language, is a municipality of northwestern Spain in the Province of A Coruña, in the autonomous community of Galicia. The local government of the municipality was the first public institution to officially use the AGAL norm of the Galician language according to the Reintegrationism ideas, as seen in its website, offering options for "Galician" (NOMIGa) and "Galician-Portuguese" (AGAL), as well as English and Spanish.

It is located on the river with the same name.
