One of the best kept secrets in northern Spain!! Fabulous self-sustaining palace with one of the best kept gardens in Spain! One can feel the work of generations that have gone into its gardens and walls. Full of special stories and anecdotes! If you can, get a guided tour! AC

If you can make time to stop here for 1 hour or so, do so. It is so picturesque and peaceful to walk around.

Absolutely beautiful. Forget the whole versailles comparison. It's not that, but in its own right it is lovely and WAY less people then Versailles. The four of us were the only people there wandering around the gardens and grottos and ponds and pergolas. Take a picnic.

As I visited it both ways, enjoying its environment within a company event and on my way, making there a short stop to have a coffee and a short rest. It is a magnificent old pazo (palace in Galician language) that is being utilized for events
