Galician palaces and Blazon manors

Cadaval's manor

Built in the 18th century by Mr. Pedro Cadaval San Román. It boasts two coats of arms the Riveras and Taboada y Losadas. The manor stands in Santa Cristina de A Ramallosa, by the river Miñor.

Ceta manor

Known as "The House of Forgiveness" due to a cruel privilege awarded by the Catholic Monarchs: any criminal suffering public punishment who managed to seize the chain hanging in the front door was forgiven. The house was built in the early 14th century and it still shows. Among others, the Ceta's, Figueroa's and Fitado's coat of arms.

Correa's manor

Lorenzo Correa y Araújo, mayor of Cuernavaca (México), ordered its construction in 1757 and in 1942 the council bought it to serve as town hall. The building comprises 630 m2 distributed in two floors and a fortified tower. On the front façade two coats of arms with the Correa's, Sotomayor's and Troncoso de Lira's crests are carved. Between them the coat of arms of Baiona -placed here in present times- can be seen. 

Mendoza's manor

Also known as the Dean House, because it was Policarpo de Mendoza, dean at Santiago cathedral, who ordered house in 1768. In fact, Mendoza's arms can still be seen on the coat of arms. Nowadays it is a hotel and restaurant.

Salgado's manor

Several reconstructions carried out during history have got rid of the original features of this 16th-century building. Not even the coat of arms remains. It was formerly known as "The Seven Bonnets Manor". 

Sancti Spiritus hospital

It was built in the 16th century and, until the 20th century, it served as home for homeless people in the region; it was known as Sancti Spiritus Hospital. Nowadays the house belongs to the Council, which established there the Cultural Activities Building. The Ministry of Culture decided to restore the building though maintaining the original structure: a ground floor and a first floor. You can visit it at Manuel Valverde St., a cobbled sloping street coming down from a side of the former Collegiate Church. 

Palace in Sabarís

Military-style building from uncertain times. It is also known as the Rectory.
