First of all for its owners, great hosts, for the place itself and specifically for the history behind it. A very interesting and exciting project with a great final result. Thanks for sharing a few hours with us. We will be back!!!

A renovated pazo converted into a rural house, run by Thomas and Rosa in an incredibly well-kept environment, full of nature. Its owners are always attentive, friendly, help you in a useful way and send guides for travelers. Fully recommended, especially for those who want to relax, families, and for those who want a closer and more familiar treatment. PS: we became friends with "Pablo" the guardian cat of the marvelous entrance patio ...

I am staying in it and it is beautiful, semi-wild garden, with fruit trees and charming little corners where you can sit and read or have a drink. Highlight the attention of the owners who are super nice and the delicious and very healthy breakfasts. RECOMMENDABLE

Indescribable quality, luxury, silence and peace. But all this is paid for. What can not be paid is the exquisite treatment of the owners. They are endearing people. Too bad they live so far from my house. Highly recommended

What a beautiful place! I am so impressed with how the owners created a country home paradise. They were able to maintain many historical aspects of the property yet modernize certain amenities, which made our stay very comfortable. They are the best hosts. I am a Spanish High School teacher in California, USA. So, I asked Rosa (one of the owners) if I could interview her about the Pazo and use the video in my Spanish class. She was so kind as to oblige. If you are in Galicia near Orense, El Pazo of Chaioso place is a must visit location to stay the night. Muchas gracias!!!!

Goryokaku Fortress

Goryōkaku (五稜郭) (literally, 'five-point fort') is a star fort in the Japanese city of Hakodate on the island of Hokkaido. The fortress was completed in 1866. It was the main fortress of the short-lived Republic of Ezo.

Goryōkaku was designed in 1855 by Takeda Ayasaburō and Jules Brunet. Their plans was based on the work of the French architect Vauban. The fortress was completed in 1866, two years before the collapse of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It is shaped like a five-pointed star. This allowed for greater numbers of gun emplacements on its walls than a traditional Japanese fortress, and reduced the number of blind spots where a cannon could not fire.

The fort was built by the Tokugawa shogunate to protect the Tsugaru Strait against a possible invasion by the Meiji government.

Goryōkaku is famous as the site of the last battle of the Boshin War.
