The manor was built in 1511 by the Díaz Varela family in the Rosende enclave. One of the descendants of the saga, Carlos Recarey Díaz Varela, ran the Viceroyalty of Mexico, later returning to his land to occupy different public positions (such as royal collector and governor of Lugo). It was he who would be in charge of expanding the initial building at the end of the 18th century. From this period is the decoration of the chapel and rooms through unique frescoes executed by Juan Bernardo de Castinandi, a Galician painter trained in Rome, which give a special palatial and courtly character to this Manor. The Díaz Varela family has had a significant presence in the world of culture on both sides of the Atlantic. Among the last residents of the house, Roberto Díaz Varela, director of the La Marina newspaper in Havana, stands out; Dalmiro de la Válgoma y Díaz Varela, historian from Monforte and perpetual secretary of the National Academy of History; or Elena Quiroga, one of the great writers of Galicia and language scholar. The House of the Young Ladies, this is how the Pazo is known in the region due to the sisters who lived there in the middle of the last century, the last Díaz Varela to live there.

From the early 1950s to the mid-1960s Manuel Vieitez, current owner, spent the long summers from June to September with his brothers in the village of Rosende, where his grandmother Vicenta lived; This time took root in his love for his land and his fascination with the Casa Grande de Rosende, the ancient origin of the town to which it gives its name.

At the end of the 70s, destiny brought him back to the town coinciding with the death of Miss Lala, the last of the Díaz Varelas who lived in the house. The Vieitez family purchases the fragmented inheritance and begins the long road to return the splendor to the decrepit Casa Grande de Rosende, deciding to use it for rural tourism at the end of the 90s.

In 2005, the Pazo suffered a spectacular fire that destroyed a large part of the house. After the whole family got together, we decided to rebuild it and give it a new splendor with all the care and maximum respect for the original architecture, recovering the “peaceful” atmosphere that They jealously maintained the last Díaz Varela.
