Valladolid Cathedral Built on the remains of the old Romanesque collegiate church, known as La Inconclusa was an ambitious project by the renowned architect Juan de Herrera. The views from the almost 70-metre high tower and the Diocesan Museum inside are well worth a visit.
San Pablo Convent Church One of the most important buildings in Valladolid and one of the sights that always strikes visitors with its great beauty. Its impressive 16th-century façade, in Elizabethan Gothic style and escorted by two slender towers, is one of its main attractions. It takes a few minutes to appreciate all its details.
Santa Maria La Antigua Church Many point to its tower as one of the architectural jewels of Romanesque architecture, not only in the province of Valladolid, but in the whole region of Castilla y León. While its tower and north portico, both in Romanesque style, date back to the 13th century, the rest of the building dates from the 14th century, where we find a Gothic style. The gardens next to it make the visit even more special.
San Benito Church It stands on the remains of the city's first citadel. Although its subsequent remodelling has meant that the current church differs from what it once was - in fact, for example, in the 19th century the two main towers of the original construction were demolished due to their poor condition - it is still one of the city's landmark churches. And, by the way, it's a very pleasant place to enjoy the summer cinema.
Valladolid Plaza Mayor One of the most important squares in Spain. And not because it is one of the largest but because it has also served as an inspiration for others such as Madrid and Salamanca. Formerly known as Plaza del Mercado (Market Square) because it was home to the sales outlets of various guilds, after the fire that devastated the city in 1561, the King Philip II decided to rebuild his native Valladolid and, within it, this iconic square. Today, it is still a meeting place for the masses, hosting concerts and the Christmas market at the end of the year.
