The lower stretches of the Ulla River and the granitic stone of the Tierras de Iria region are the cradle of the Pazo de Arretén winery in Padrón, one of the most important palaces in the history of Galician and Spanish literature. The grapes grown on its 6.5 hectares of land are used to make one of Galicia’s best renowned wines.
The “pazo” (country house) was erected in the 16th century by one of the region’s best-known aristocratic families, Bermúdez de Castro. As in almost all the stately buildings in the area, its architecture combines the horizontal stability that granite provides with the skill and lightness provided by Pontevedra’s stonemasons. The present-day layout is from the 17th century. We have the honour of occupying a space where the great Galician poetess Rosalía de Castro, who wrote Cantares Gallegos (Galician Songs), lived.
