Travel Tips for Valladolid
If you're in Valladolid during...
If you're in Valladolid during the Fiesta of La Virgen de San Lorenzo (September 9th) be sure to sample the food available at the street fairs and amusement park fair (set-up on the field next to Jose Zorrilla Stadium).
The picture shown here is of empanadillas - a pastry that could have fish or other delicacies on the inside. The fondest sight of Valladolid I remember was the street stand sponsored by the 'Cerveceria El Guevo'.

Museo de arte contemporaneo Espanol
Most definitely a highlight for me was a visit
to the 'patio Herreriano'
The museum for modern art.
At first I was a little dissapointed-
it is a beautifull building.
(the fact that they reuse old buildings and
give them a new destination , fantastic)
Disapointed because the first 3 'salas' are
the permanent collection. I don't like those
paintings with 3 stripes and 5 colored
But it soon became better and showed the
true spirit of the new Spanish creative
-Javier Velasco : I write this story with tears.
'an installation with light reflecting all the
chrystal drops and a video with a swimming
-Cristina Garcia Rodero
'a whole room with fantastic pictures made
at mystic rituals in or outside Spain'
-Ana Laura Ala?z
'A facinating videoclib , shown in a pink
soft room. She even sings it herself'
What you need to know is that all of these
works are temporary. But it is sure a good
break from all that religious old art.
bonmse's Valladolid Page
I have visited Valladolid a couple of times. The first was in September 2000 and the second exactly one year later.
I drove from Madrid to Valladolid on the A-6 highway to catch the soccer games of the Pucela team. In 2000 I witnessed the 1-1 tie against Numancia and in 2001 the 1-1 draw versus Valencia.
The picture above is of the city's soccer stadium named after the writer Jose Zorrilla. I was there on 9/9/2001 during the feast of the Virgin of San Lorenzo.
By coincidence, both trips happened on a Sunday during the week of the city's annual fiesta.
Besides soccer the visitor can partake of other cultural events like: bullfights, street festivals, fair, etc...
Why my interest in Valladolid, you may ask?
The answer has to do with my place of origin....in Michoacan Mexico.
I was born in a city called Zamora that has a river called Duero flowing through it. Nearby cities have names like Leon, Salamanca, etc.... The capital of Michoacan state is Morelia but when it was founded by the Spaniards in the late 1500s it was given the name Valladolid.
Coincidentally (or maybe not) two of my favorite soccer teams are Monarcas Morelia and Valladolid FC (Aupa Pucela!).
