La Palloza de Chis, Balboa, Os ancares
"Pallozas" (meaning "straw roof") is the name of the tradicional houses in the isolated county of Ancares, in northwestern Spain. People, cattle & foods shared a single room hut, so they could survive the long winters, as they could be isolated for weeks by the intense snowfall usual in the zone.
The fortress Bip (architect V. Brenna) was erected and the park Mariental was laid out on the Tyzva River in 1795-97.
