15TH CENTURY MEDIEVAL TOWER
This impressive medieval Galician tower, today a Parador, dominates the urban and rural landscape of this town in Lugo, capital of the fertile region of the `Terra Chá`, lands which grew up around this tower and in which the gentlemen of Andrade, Counts of Vilalba, would live.
The Parador offers cozy, peaceful spaces with a medieval look; the 6 rooms located in the tower and the Salon de los Andrade also share this style, all with mural paintings and coats of arms. In the shadow of the tower stands the new building, wrought in stone and in the style of a typical Galician palace, where the remaining 42 rooms, bar, restaurant, etc., are located.
