Other than common pazos, the origin of this one was an industry, as it was the location of the first paper factory in Galicia. Along the centuries it has hoarded has an extraordinary richness in history, nature and fauna. Besides, the place is surrounded by Camino legends as the one about the Rocha Nai, a bedrock with fertility properties for pilgrims, or the one about the Castro Lupario, a fortified settlement where the legendary Queen Lupa lived, the lady of this land, who converted to Christianity due to the miracles surrounding the arrival to Galicia of the remains of the Apostle St. James.
