Thank you. frank.

I would have never thought of Valladolid as a major tourist destination, but it is pleasant enough to keep you busy for a day, or even two. It is a long time since I visited, but I still remember Valladolid as a smaller, provincial version of Madrid. However, if you have the time, you may find neighbouring cities like Leon, Burgos and especially Salamanca far more rewarding, and therefore hiring a car would definitely be a good idea.

Enjoy.

Hi
I recommend you to stay in Valladolid 2-3 days and the rest for visiting other cities of the region (Castilla y León)

In Valladolid don´t miss the following:
- Museums: National Museum of Sculpture, Modern Art museum "Patio Herreriano", Oriental Museum, Provincial Museum of Valladolid
- Monuments: Churches (San Pablo, La Antigua...), the Cathedral, palaces
- Restaurants: regional gastronomy in "Mesón San Pedro Regalado" (Platerías Street), other good restaurants "La Criolla" in Calixto Férnadez de la Torre Street and "La Parrilla de San Lorenzo (San Lorenzo Street)
- Pubs, bars and discos: there different zones. For example, you can have a cup of wine in Correos Street, beer in Paraiso Street and dance in Coca zone (Martí y Monsó Square)
- Events: april 26 soccer match Valladolid- Mallorca; International Contest of Sculptures of sand in Main Square; exhibition about queen Isabel la Católica in Monasterio del Prado.
- Shopping: Santiago Street and sorrounds

No need car for movements inside Valladolid.
The rest of days you can visit Salamanca, Burgos, Avila, Segovia, towns about 100 km from Valladolid. There are good connections in public transport from Valladolid. There are also different routes from Valladolid: route of the castles, route of the red wine (Ribera del Duero). For further info about Castilla y León region: www.turismocastillayleon.com or in the tourist office of Valladolid (Santiago Street)

I had not been in this one, but been in othe other version they have on the coast Selwo and like it.

Rent a car and visit some of the castles around Valladolid, we did a few and love them, peñafiel or La Mota at Medina del Campo as example.

Travel Tips for Valladolid

This is practical...

by belgianchocolate

Something I missed in so
many places and they got it here.
A place where they keep your luggage for you.

So on the last day of your trip you can still
hang round without having to go back to
the hotel to pick up your luggage.

It is located central in the bus station.
'calle san José'

Academia de Caballeria

by zindara

This is (for me) one of the most beautiful buildings in the town. It hosts the army school of horse-riding.
There is a sculpture just in front of the door "monumento a los Cazadores de Alcántara".
The fountain and sculpture in the picture are the ones in Plaza de Zorrilla (Zorrilla's Square), and the sculpture is dedicated to Zorrilla, the great writter.

Valladolid - an Ex-Capital of Spain

by easyoar

"Valladolid"

Valladolid used to be the capital of Spain before Madrid. Many very impressive buildings were built around this time, and many of them still stand today. That is the good news.

The bad news is that more recently, the town planners (you mean to say there were some?) allowed a mega sprawl to develop which totally engulfs anything nice that remains. I once read in a travel guide book, that the only time you should visit Valladolid should be at Easter time (they do a nice procession). At the time I agreed wholeheartedly with this summary (not that it won me many friends there!). I have reason to visit Valladolid regularly, and I do have to admit that more recently things have started to improve. The Plaza Mayor (Central Square) has been nicely renovated and more work elsewhere is currently ongoing - but a lot more needs to be done. Another reason not to go there is that without doubt they make the worst bread I have ever tasted (although Moscow ran it a close race). I can only describe it as tasting as a stage prop loaf (i.e. its taste and texture is reminiscent of plaster of paris.
