Overview

Those who have written about this architectural monument of stone and plants-dubbed the "Generalife of the North" and "Galician Versailles"-found they needed to compare it to universally known monuments in order to express both the singularity and significance of what is the best preserved of the Galician country estates. Although seemingly exaggerated, the comparison aptly conveys the fact that, although it was built very far from the Court, its design was based on courtly baroque gardens.

Absolutely beautiful. Forget the whole versailles comparison. It's not that, but in its own right it is lovely and WAY less people then Versailles. The four of us were the only people there wandering around the gardens and grottos and ponds and pergolas. Take a...More

The Pazo (palace) de Oca consists solely of the gardens, which were really beautiful and tranquil. It's about 30mins drive from the city of Santiago de Compostela. If you don't have a car you can take the bus - Castromil Monbus from Santiago de Compostela....More
