Vimianzo Castle was built in the 12th century and it
was the property of the Moscoso family.
In 1467 it was conquered and destroyed by the Irmandinos, but later it was
rebuilt under Archibishop Fonseca.
After the Vimianzo Castle came back to its original
owner, the Moscoso family, archibishop Fonseca became the castle's prisoner.
Due to this fact, the Catholic Kings expelled the family from Galicia and
they lost their property again.
