Description

Baroque pazo, constructed in the 17th century, belonging to Don Ruy Ozores de Ochoa, who let his neighbours use it as a pigeon house. It was erected over an old 16th-century fortification, seat of the Riobó family. Only the tower remains, square and battlemented, in four levels, although today only two are conserved. It has a semicircular arched doorway with large voussoirs, accompanied by a worn-down heraldic shield. On the rear façade, there is direct access to the third floor, on account of the unevenness of the terrain. The thick, hermetic walls, almost without openings, are topped with a railing of cut stone decorated with battlements
