Palas de Rei Things to Do: 4 reviews and 20 photos
The most interesting for me thing inside the church of San Salvador are tombs of two Galician knights made in second half of XV century. On the left hand side stands vertically the grave slab with effigy of Don Diego Garcia de Ulloa who died in 1410. This slab was paid by his Grandson Juan Perez de Ulloa and this fact is correct because Don Diego who died in 1410 shown here in the armor typical for second part of XV century. Ulloa family received the title of Count in late of XV century and their castle Pambre is situated not far from this place. Splendid sarcophagus belongs to Fernas Ares Noguerol died in 1476. Both effigies are invaluable source of information on full suit of so-called “white” Gothic Armor typical for second half of XV century.
