The city of Valladolid is the centre of the Castilian-Spanish industry and businesses. It’s perfectly connected to Madrid and Barcelona thanks to its airport with regular flights, train, and highway.

The old town of Valladolid reflects the importance of its history. Its Plaza Mayor was built in the XVI century, and as of today is the meeting point for the locals. For that reason, we suggest you to begin your tour here. This square becomes even more popular during the Holy Week, since the numerous processions have a mandatory stop there.
The Plaza Mayor is surrounded by restaurants and bars where you can have a tapa or try a traditional Castilian dish. For those who want to go shopping, we suggest you to go to Santiago Street, where you will find a wide variety of shops and stores.
The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption was designed by Juan de Herrera in the XVI century and is one of the most well-known historical and religious monuments. During your visit, take note on the magnificent altarpiece by Juan de Juni. This cathedral replaced an old Collegiate Church that as of today it still remains next to the cathedral’s walls. We also suggest visiting the churches of San Pablo and Santa María La Antigua.
In addition, Valladolid is surrounded by beautiful green areas like Campo Grande, the biggest park in the city. While there, we also recommend you to visit the Playa de las Moreras or the Canal de Castilla given that they are already on your way and near the city.
