La torre de la quimera

La torre de la quimera, or “tower of the chimera” is one of two towers of the main facade of Pazo de Meirás, Emilia Pardo Bazán’s Summer home. La torre de la quimera has several floors, beginning with her library on the ground floor and her writing office on the top floor. In between are rooms dedicated to dress and grooming. Emilia Pardo Bazán designated the top floor for writing for the solitude it provided and the view overlooking her lemon grove. Photo by Marissa Luquette.
