The façade of this architectural masterpiece never fails to turn heads.
A magnificent corner of the historical centre.
No other corner of the city is home to such an impressive display of compacted beauty. Built by the same architect as the "El Moderno" building, the stunning façade of the Casa Yáñez is a prime example of architectural historicism with notable neo-Gothic touches. Its most characteristic feature is undoubtedly the wooden chamfer in the form of a neo-Gothic gallery looking out onto the Compostela square, which is easily recognisable by its thin pointed arches. The eclectically styled front door is flanked by heavy corbels that support the chamfer. The building dates back to 1900 and was commissioned by Paulino Yáñez, a close friend of the talented Pacewicz who was one of the most famous civil architects of the time.
