The origins of the Pazo Quiñones de León date back to the 17th century, although it was not until the 19th century when it acquired its current form after important renovations. Its style represents a classic example of Galician manor architecture, with characteristic elements such as a large access gate, wrought iron balconies and a coat of arms.

The gardens of the Pazo Quiñones de León are one of its main attractions. They are designed in several styles, including a French garden, an English garden and a forest with native species. In addition, the gardens are home to a wide variety of plant species and are a perfect place to walk and enjoy the tranquility.

The museum is also particularly famous for its collection of Galician paintings, with works dating from the 19th century to the present day. The manor and its gardens host numerous cultural activities throughout the year, including concerts, temporary exhibitions and educational events.
