Pazo de Xelmírez (Palace of Archbishop Xelmírez)

Pazo de Xelmírez (Palace of Archbishop Xelmírez) Review

Step into this rich 12th-century building to view an unusual example of Romanesque civic architecture, with a cool, clean, vaulted dining hall. The little figures carved on the corbels in this graceful, 100-foot-long space are drinking, eating, and listening to music with great medieval gusto. Each is different, so stroll around for a tableau of mealtime merriment.
