The "Rectoral de Lestedo" is an old parish house from the 15th century. There, lived the parish priests of Lestedo whose parish is a few steps away. On the same land they had a hera and worked the land, the cattle were also in the shelter at the bottom of the house. There were times, when the Rectoral was used as a hospital to cure those in need.
In 1987, a large fire started in the kitchen burned 60% of the house leaving it in rubble and only the parts built in stones survived. Having been demolished, it was no longer possible to inhabit it. So the priests had to retire to other houses.
It was abandoned until the beginning of the 21st century, when two brothers from the province of Lugo began the recovery of the house. The building crumbled almost devoured by the vegetation that completely covered it. However, thanks to the architect's great work, much of the old stone walls were used, reusing chestnut beams and other pieces of carpentry. This is how the Rectoral house retains its magic of yesteryear with the comfort of the present.
After much effort and enthusiasm, this place that once was the abode of the religious, today receives the pilgrims who seek to complete the Way enjoying a comfortable rest. A place where the natural abounds with the work of man from centuries ago. It is not difficult in the silence of the afternoon, after having walked kilometers transported to another time and recover for the next day.

The main building has 5 spacious rooms, 2 triple rooms and 3 double rooms with bathroom, 3 of them with hydromassage bath, on the ground floor there are another 2 double rooms 1 adapted for the disabled.
