An old seminary for confessors
The Raxoi Palace is located in front of the Cathedral in Plaza del Obradoiro. It was commissioned by the archbishop Raxoi in 1766 and designed by the Frenchman Carlos Lemaur. There is a magnificent and elegant Neoclassic facade that supports itself on a granite colonnade with fourteen half-moon arches. Originally it was used as a seminary for confessors, but today it is the site of City Hall and the Galician government.
