The word "pazo" comes from "pallatium" and is used in Galicia to designate a manor house often built in the countryside. Its origin dates back to medieval castles and fortresses owned by nobles or the church.

In our case, we have to go back to the year 1435 to trace the history of the site where Pazo da Trave is located. In that year, at a location known as "Paso dos Cabaleiros," the bishop of Mondoñedo, the cathedral dean, and two procurators met to discuss the dispute between the nobility and the church over the parish of Galdo and rent fees. After several disputes and litigations, Galdo loses its status as a council and becomes part of Viveiro.

In the same year, the Bishopric of Mondoñedo grants the estate of Galdo to Don Alonso Pérez de Viveiro for 5.000 maravedis. Several years later, the property falls into the hands of the merino of the estate, the Viscount of Altamira, Don Juan de Pita Pumariño, who bequeaths it to his son, Fernando Pumariño, alderman of Viveiro and married to Catalina de Miranda, sister of the Archbishop of Seville and founder of the University of Oviedo. This marriage underscores the close relationship, not only geographical, between Asturias and Galicia.

Next in line to inherit the property is the daughter, María de las Alas Pumariño, married to the corregidor of A Coruña and founder of the Convent of the Conceptionists in Viveiro.

The property continues its journey through inheritances and legacies until it comes into the hands of the Lord of Galdo, Juan Gabriel da Ponte, in the mid-19th century.

Today, the Pazo has been restored using traditional techniques of the region and adorned with beautiful ceramic murals and stained glass. It is a welcoming place that offers tranquility, comfort, and excellent service, ideal for having a drink, dining, staying overnight, and hosting events in its splendid facilities.

A little paradise where you can enjoy any occasion.
