Standing on the confluence of the Pisuerga and Esgueva rivers, Valladolid is a city ready to be discovered…
Valladolid [link in Spanish] is an undiscovered delight. An historic city with a beautiful old centre, which is just perfect for strolling around and losing yourself in. There’s the Cathedral, the churches of San Pablo, San Benito and San Miguel, without forgetting the church of Santa María de la Antigua, one of the most beautiful and elegant in the city. Did you know that the Plaza Mayor in Valladolid was the first in the whole of Spain to take the shape of a square? Nowadays it’s a meeting place for locals and tourists alike.
And if you want to get back to nature, or simply take a break, Valladolid has a great ‘green lung’ right in its heart, the majestic Campo Grande gardens [link in Spanish], where you can spend hours in the sun.
Valladolid is also known for its cuisine – Castilian cooking is at its best here: roast meats, game, suckling lamb… Valladolid has a vast repertoire, including sausages, pine nuts, chickpeas, red sea bream, chicory, pigeon, breads… without forgetting the finest accompaniment: the superb ‘denomination of origin’ wines from the region, a delight for any palate.
And if these weren’t reasons enough, in the coming weeks Valladolid plays host to a range of cultural events [link in Spanish]: musicals, theatrical works, Nativity plays, operas, Christmas events, exhibitions, concerts, both classical and modern…
Allow Valladolid to surprise you, and let yourself fall in love with the city!
