A Escusalla

This building, now in ruins, lies just outside Ludeiros. It is an old manor house built by the Abbot of Manín, Don José Martínez y Parga, a rich and religious man of the eighteenth century. After passing through various hands, the house was abandoned. Over time, a rumour began that the soul of a friar called “Marrequiño”, an old inhabitant, used to appear in the house. According to this legend, the friar in the past hired masons from different places to do work. Supposedly, he used to avoid paying by killing them and burying them in the yard. It is said that the souls of the friar and his victims wander around the ruins. Regardless of the supernatural facts, the stately ruins, now overgrown with vegetation, are undeniably beautifull.
