Wanting something to do locally, we decided to take a trip to this Pazo. There are several Pazos but not many of them are open to the public. The one at Tor has only been opened for the last 8 years previously it was in the same family for 400 hundred years. The garden is not formally laid out, thankfully and there is a wonderful labyrinth which is unique in that it is made of stones. We had a guided tour which lasted about an hour and we were allowed to take photos which is not usually the case in historic houses. They are some wonderful pictures and objects throughout the house of which the clavicord was one.

Nuestra primera sala de escape y lo pasamos muy bien, fue mucho más divertido de lo que esperábamos.
Muy bien ambientado, los desafíos son variados para que todo el equipo pueda aportar, y la intervención de Berni y Cuqui siempre en el momento adecuado cuando te bloqueas. Hay varias salas, así que repetiremos en cuanto volvamos por la zona.
La actividad es una manera estupenda de completar un fin de semana paseando por la Ribeira Sacra.

We were facinated by this Colegio. We had a great hostel room with a view to this ancient building :) we started our trip early so we qere a bit disappointed to find out that the Colegio is open from 11:30
If you want to see this place, visit it during lunchtime :)

El museo esta bien en lineas generales,imagino que para el presupuesto que tienen no da para mucho mas pero en cuanto al material,lo tienen un poco amontonado y no se puede disfrutar de el.La rotonda esta muy bien pero me quede con las ganas de pasear por ella no solo verla de lejos.Tiene tres locomotoras muy bien conservadas y el coche en el que el rey volvió a España pero siendo sincero hacer un viaje para verlo no vale la pena sobre todo si vienes de lejos.No esta mal pero podría estar mejor.De lo mejor el que hace la visita guiada.

Torre del Homenaje

Reviewed By tomwO6177GV - Winchester, United Kingdom

This medieval tower/keep dominates the heights of Monforte de Lemos with big views over the surrounding area. It's well-maintained and has historic importance.
Inside is a small museum spread over four floors. Information panels are in Galician and Spanish, but the reception desk has a single sheet summary in English. Entrance is 1.5€.
The site, next to the parador, can be walked from town or you can drive up. Access to the tower is steep and on large steps. It isn't recommended for people with limited mobility.
Overall, Monforte de Lemos and the tower are worth a diversion. It's a nicer town than the impression given on approach roads.
