During the XV and XVII centuries, the region of Alto Támega, as in the rest of Galicia, lived a time of authentic psychosis and fear. With the excuse of fighting against evil and defending Catholic doctrine, a real persecution of wealthy people was carried out with the aim of seizing their property. For that the courts of the Inquisition of A Granxiña (Tama-gos; Verín) and Videferre were created.
| The house inhabited by the inquisitor of Videferre is one of the best examples of civil ar-chitecture in the entire municipality. It has rectangular plan and walls of granite stone and in the facade it boasts a main door under a large round arch; on it, a coat of arms of the Inquisition in which a cross can be seen flanked by a palm and a sword. It has a project-ing balcony on a stone ledge with metal balustrade.
