Pazo Quiñones de Leon. Vigo. Galicia. España.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

El pazo es un tipo de casa solariega tradicional gallega, de carácter señorial, normalmente ubicada en el campo, antaño residencia de personas importantes de la comunidad (antes, de reyes o nobles). Fueron de importancia crucial en los siglos XVII a XIX, relacionados con la arquitectura rural y monástica y con el sistema de organización feudal, ya que constituían una especie de unidad de gestión local alrededor de los cuales transcurría la vida de los aldeanos

Como categoría arquitectónica palaciega florece una vez concluidas las refriegas señoriales del siglo XV, pues hasta entonces los hidalgos habitaban en torres, construcciones más apropiadas para la actividad bélica. Así, los pazos fueron convirtiéndose en la marca social y refugio de la clase hidalga.

El pazo como estructura arquitectónica civil tradicional se le asociaba una red social: la de los sirvientes del hidalgo y de los tributarios de los fueros, que mismamente llegaban a vivir en el mismo recinto. Suelen constar de un edificio principal rodeado de jardín, un palomar y a menudo incluyen edificaciones anexas como pequeñas capillas para celebraciones religiosas.

El vocablo pazo es un cognado de palacio, pues procede del latín palatiu. Como curiosidad, la palabra portuguesa, lengua cercana al gallego, para decir palacio es paço.
