They say that the stones know how to speak in this ancient medieval city in north-western Spain. In the land where Miguel de Cervantes wrote Don Quixote, the streets are full of history.
The straight lines in the layout of its beautiful Plaza Mayor inspired the construction of many other squares in Spain. The city’s cathedral is popularly known as “The Unfinished Cathedral” due to the fact that it was consecrated and never finished. The Church of San Benito el Real is one of the most popular attractions in the city. As iconic as the statue of Christopher Columbus in honour of the discoverer of America who died in the city of Valladolid. At the Colon House Museum you can discover the close relationship the famous explorer had with the city, the place where he met the Catholic Monarchs to get the funding for the trip that changed the world. The Valladolid Cavalry Academy is beautiful and the Plaza del Viejo Coso still has the same shape as the old bullring, one of the few octagonal bullrings in the country.
