Historical facts:

Castillo de Corullón

The Castle dates from 15th century. Its tower was copied to build a similar one in Tuscany (Italy). Today, the tower and the surrounding ruins are still preserved. The best place which has been preserved is the Tower of Homage. On its entry point, two armorial bearings mark both houses, Osorio´s House and Valcarce´s House. It is a squared tower with three storeys, separated by imposts, battlements, modillions, meurtrières, and the remains of a great nave in tree sections. Its construction is from 15th century and it belonged to Alvarez Osorio until 1486, and then to Álvarez de Toledo.

Currently, the castle belongs to the Marquises of Villafranca´s descendants who restored it some years ago.
