Long Description:
"It is named after one of the most universal poets in Ourense. In its time it was the building that was erected for the headquarters of the Bank of Spain, inaugurated in 1930. In 2010 it was remodeled keeping the original decoration, but adapting the ground floor to dedicate it to the cultural activity of the city, especially exhibitions. The municipal hall occupies only the ground floor, while the upper ones are offices of the Cadastre, with independent entrance by the Concordia street.

The building, from 1929, was designed by the architects Juan de Zavala Lafora and José Yarnoz Larrosa. The former was a collaborator of Le Corbusier and the latter a Gold Medal of Fine Arts and a member of the San Fernando Academy. The rehabilitation project involved its complete emptying, respecting the typology of the original and the elements of heritage interest. Thus, the exterior façade is preserved intact, with an exit to Paseo Street, the carpentry on the ground floor and the spatial configuration of the main floor."
