The Pazo de Mouzo or Pazo de Dor and the Pazo da Paxariña are two of Camariñas' most significant examples of civil architecture.
The Pazo de Mouzo is named after its last owners. If you came along the Vimianzo-Camariñas road, it is very likely that you have already spotted the Pazo's promontory . It is privately owned.
It dates back to mid- 18th century, a fact that came to light during its 1987 restoration, when a pre-1787 inscription surfaced.
The building is accessed via a stone staircase. The pazo is rectangular and has two floors. The walls are made of granite stone and the facade is very simple, with a balcony over the front door and a rounded arch flanked by two pillars located under a moulding doubling as a cornice.
Near the pazo are a number of buildings in good repair put to different uses, a chapel and a beautiful dovecote that belonged to the Pazo da Paxariña (16th century). This was moved, brick by brick, from here to where you can see it now, the mouth of the Rio Grande.
