A main building of 675 m2 and a private romantic park of 14,862 m2, in the center of Pontevedra.
We pass through a large stone portal with two lions on the sides of the family shields – impressive. From there, a walkway flanked by lush magnolias leads to the Pazo de La Parda, with a fountain at the center of the square that structures the garden.
Between these trees, flower beds, and fountains, the Council of Ministers of King Alfonso XIII once walked. And part of the history of that thrilling moment in the country was decided here. It has always been the residence of a family with ancient Galician roots that wielded great political influence in the region. A stone placed in a secluded fountain on the estate is dated back to 1620, attesting to the great antiquity of the property.
The perfect atmosphere and decor are already created. And the space: 14,862 m2 to host whatever you wish. From an incomparable home to a very special hotel, a high-level business center, or even an institutional building.
The grand main building, made of granite stone, has two floors and a robust crenellated tower. Generously laid out with 12 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, dining room, living room, gallery or solana, office, library, a large kitchen, a winery, and an external garage of 30 m2. The approximate surface area of this building is 675 m2.
A unique property due to the possibilities it offers, both in its strategic location and its state of preservation. Everything fits into this exceptional urban space, with opportunities for the world of business, leisure, or simply to enjoy a lifestyle from another era in the 21st century.
These architectural elements and their inclusion in a property declare its unique pazo character.
Galician manor houses often had these independent buildings to accommodate the house's guards, the caretakers. This one is made of mortar and stone, in a Portuguese style, and measures 150 m2. There are also stables, a hayloft, and a warehouse.
And a rarity: in terms of size and construction, one of the few remaining examples of Galician hórreos of this type. Supported by 12 stone pillars, it rises above a warehouse, aligned with the pazo and the wonderful stone chapel.
The chapel transforms a manor house into a pazo. This one, at Pazo de La Parda in Pontevedra, has a semi-public character. There are worship services every Sunday, and weddings can take place, but the property decides. And the accesses are independent – the public from the street, the owners from inside the pazo. It can accommodate about 40 people, with an approximate area of 85 m2.
The Malvar brothers, deans of the Santiago Cathedral, commissioned the construction of Pazo de La Parda. It was the early 17th century. Specifically, in the spring of 1616, Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare passed away, two authors who represent the best of universal literature. Can you imagine what Pontevedra was like back then...? Today, Pontevedra is a modern city, yet it remains a stately city that unloads its activity onto the giant of Vigo. It can afford to maintain its spirit of a 'provincial capital for life' in many corners, without the stress of a big city.
The Pazo de La Parda is located in the capital of the province of Pontevedra, on the bisector formed by the roads to Ourense and Vigo. Just a five-minute walk from the train station (and soon the AVE, the high-speed train). Twenty minutes from the city center, also on foot. And 400 meters from exit 132-B of the Vigo-Pontevedra-Santiago Highway, where, depending on the direction you choose, you can fly from any of its international airports to the rest of the world."
