Sightseeing in Valladolid - what to see. Complete travel guide

Valladolid. Plaza Mayor Once Valladolid was the capital of Spain; today this is a large industrial center that doesn’t stop surprising its guests by wonderful architecture and hospitable atmosphere.

Santiago Street is considered the center of the city. If you take a walk along it, you can reach Mayor Square. All most beautiful buildings of the city are located around the square or nearby it. The city hall is also situated nearby and a famous Valle Market occupies the opposite side. You won’t even notice how quickly the day passes away if you dedicate it to observation of the local places of interest. The square has many sights and trading centers that feature wide choice of various goods and souvenirs. Cozy cafes and wonderfully calm atmosphere will help you to relax and forget about stressful urban life. The local cathedral is considered one of main cultural sights of the city. The building of the cathedral started in 1582 and it’s not finished even now. Today the large building of the cathedral is partially in use as in its halls you can see several exhibitions and the main relic – a massive altar designed in baroque style. Nearby the cathedral you will find the Santa Maria de Antigua church and the Royal Palace of Pimentel that is now used as the residence of the Valladolid’s government. The National Museum of Sculpture is known as the most popular and widely visited museum in Valladolid. The museum exhibits a large collection of wooden sculptures. It’s worth mentioning that the building itself is a real piece of art. Its walls and ceilings are decorated with hand-made stone carving and magnificent frescos.

Sightseeing in Spain: things to see

Casa Mila, La Pedrera, which is located in Barcelona, might be the most famous architectural place of interest in the country. The name of the building can be literally translated as "the stone cave". The building was constructed according to the project of Gaudi and was controlled by the famous architect. It's worth mentioning that all works of Gaudi are distinguished by original and unusual design. According to initial project, Casa Mila La Pedrera was intended to be made solely from curvilinear elements and slanting partitions, but later the architect changed his original thoughts and built a unique house that has absolutely no load-bearing walls. This is the only building in the country, where even balconies have an important construction rather than decorative role. … Open
