Pazo das Torres

The origin of the Pazo das Torres manor house dates back to the 17th century and it is linked to the Freyre Moscoso family, originally from the Liáns parish.
The building consists of a number of annexes attached to the main building that has an L-shaped plan. Primed and painted granite ashlars were used in its construction, whilst the stonework remains visible in balconies and corners. The flat roof ends in battlements throughout the perimeter of the building, which is reminiscent of a medieval defensive fortress.
The Pazo das Torres is surrounded by a beautiful garden in which a centenarian ombu tree takes pride of place.
Since 1990, the pazo is used as a cultural centre that holds the Os Oleiros Museum, the Rosalía de Castro library, As Torres theatre and Casa da Gardesa facility.
