What to see in Corcubión
Corcubion, land of calm and bravery
Old Fishermen’s Guild Building
private property in use
casa de la Balconada (House of the balcony)
This building, which was ordered to be built by the corsair Ángel Escaja Bueno, has a rectangular floor plan with two areas differentiated by the two entrances: one door gives access to the house and the other could have been, in origin, the entrance to the courts. In order to overcome the existing difference in level with Rúa Perigos, the building is raised on a stone podium.
On the first floor there is a stone balcony supported by granite corbels, which rest on four pillars, also made of granite. The balusters, with a delicate carving, refer to the world of Baroque in Santiago de Compostela. The rigging used is of exposed masonry and the roof is gabled with country tiles.
