Those who have written about this architectural monument of stone and plants-dubbed the "Generalife of the North" and "Galician Versailles"-found they needed to compare it to universally known monuments in order to express both the singularity and significance of what is the best preserved of the Galician country estates. Although seemingly exaggerated, the comparison aptly conveys the fact that, although it was built very far from the Court, its design was based on courtly baroque gardens.
