Pazo de Bendaña

Mid-18th c. Baroque.

Urban palace designed by Clemente Fernández Sarela and built for the Marquis and Marquise of Bendaña. It was finished in 1759. It stands out because of its artistic balconies with railings that reflect Compostela's baroque style and the statue of Atlas or Hercules supporting the globe of the world that crowns the façade above the marquis and marquise's coat of arms. Other peculiar features are the robust chimney and the spacious central stairway. In the 19th century the original fanlights in the lower section were converted into doors, thereby changing the aspect of the façade. It presently houses the Eugenio Granell Foundation and Museum, which organises cultural activities and exhibitions.
