15. SANTA AMALIA HOUSE
Local road that leads from Ares to Redes
[43°25'39.6"N · 8°12'17.1"W]
This house was commissioned by Luciano Rojo López, who had emigrated from Redes to Havana. The designer was local architect, José Calvo, who followed the plans drawn up by an architect from A Coruña. The colonial influences are evident in the broad lateral vestibule on the left façade, with a long gallery of teak wood supported by columns. On the main façade there are balconies with concrete balustrades. The ridge tile highlights the triangular composition of the house and has a decorative finish that is neoclassical in influence. This massive house became the largest in the region and was the setting for many celebrations and social events.
