Description

Pazo with no defined style, formerly associated with the house of Andrade (feudal lords of the region). It has a interesting structure on rectangular ground plan, conserved from the original construction, and a battlemented tower with two shields on the corners, referring to the Andrades and Castro de Lemos (medieval lords). Inside, it is worth noticing the beautiful cloister with columns, glazed gallery from the 19th century, and decoration with Andalusian tiles. On the outside, the plaster rubblework walls contrast with the corners and window frames with magnificent geometric granite blocks. It underwent later transformations due to its use as a residence-school by the religious congregation of the Hijas de Cristo Rey.
