What to visit and what to see in Valladolid

Valladolid is a small town with 300 thousandth population located in the northwestern part of Spain. The sights of Valladolid have always attracted tourists from all over the world. The sights of the city begin right from its center. It is here that the main square of Valladolid, which is also called Plaza Mayor, is located. It was created in the 13th century. A little later, it served as a prototype for the creation of other squares in Spain, the most famous of which is the main square in the capital of Spain.

The most famous sights of the city include: the Cathedral, the Church of St. Mary, the Royal Palace, Teatro Calderón, the House of Christopher Columbus, the Church of St. Paul and the Cervantes House Museum and others.

The Cathedral is a visiting card of the city. It was designed back in the 16th century. Then the architect Juan de Herrera worked on its development. The cathedral was designed in classic Spanish style with the addition of Baroque elements. Today, a variety of works of art are stored here. Once the works of El Greco were kept here.

At the beginning of the design work, it was supposed to create the largest cathedral ever built in Spain. According to historians, the foundation of the cathedral was laid in 1527 by the hand of an architect by a craftsman named Rodrigo Gil de Ontanyon. However, the construction had to be frozen due to lack of funds. A little later, the construction was nevertheless resumed after the signing of the relevant order by King Philip II. However, the story repeated itself: after a while the construction was not completed for the same banal reason - lack of money.

The appearance of the cathedral, however, as well as its interior decoration, has been subjected to modifications more than once. For example, in the 18th century the upper part of the facade was completely changed, and in 1841, after a strong earthquake, the tower of the cathedral completely collapsed. Over the years, it was completely rebuilt and acquired a new important element - the statue of Christ. It will only take a few days to see all the attractions already listed, so we advise you to take care of rental housing in advance.

Another important attraction of the city was Mayor Square. This is the main square of Valladolid, which is located in the very center of the city. It is here that a monument to its founder, Count Pedro Ansures, is erected. The time of its foundation is the 13th century. Then it was called the market square, and from the 16th century it began to be called the Main.
