Museo Fundación Eugenio Granell (Pazo de Bendaña)

The stone building was designed by the architect Clemente Fernández Sarela and built towards the end of the first half of the XVIIIth century.

THE FAÇADE

Its main façade is divided into three main bodies with a perfectly symmetrical distribution of its doors and windows which alternate except in the center of the building.

THE SHIELD

The marquis shield, which is seen on the main façade of the building, is surrounded by a carefully finished fringe formed by shells, volutes, leaves and ribbons.

A stone figure can be seen on top of the heraldry which has been identified as Atlas. It holds a sphere on its shoulders adorned with the sun and stars.

For a very long time the building housed different private and city entities, until 1995 when the Town Hall decided it should house the Eugenio Granell Foundation and Museum.

THE INTERIOR

The interior of the building, including its vast entrance, is built around its majestic and theatrical staircase which occupies a square space with an open area. The baluster and the steps are made of stone from the ground floor to be replaced by wood before reaching the first floor.
