The Pazo da Escola
is a rustic
touristic institution, established in the manorial building called
Pazo de Mendoza. It is situated in the quarter of Moreira, in Mañufe,
and it was founded in the 18th century by D.
Policarpo de Mendoza.
restored, the Pazo has an U form, with wine vaults and stables,
and an inside yard and porches. The outbuildings of the lodging
were on the first floor, where the original fireplace, of great
beauty and considerable dimensions is kept.
rooms of this Pazo are of a bigger than the rooms of other Pazos.
In the east side of the north wing there is a great heraldry with
the weapons of Mendoza.
All the land property is fenced with a wall of approximately 2 metres
height. In the south side, and adjacent to the path, there are two
front doors: one of them of small dimensions and the second one,
the main one, situated at the rignt of the first one.
In the external side of the building we find lots of references
to the agricultural work of the time: a good example is the “eira”
of stone, a place to “mallar” (beat) the wheat and
Likewise, it has a quite big granary built on pillars, with a
suntial on the upper side; the suntial is quite well conserved.
Finally, we have to say that the Pazo has not got a chapel in
the inside (something typical of this kind of buildings), due
to the nearness of the parochial church, just to the other side
of the path.
