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.
One more interesting square is called Universidad, and it is named so because on this square is located the building of the local university founded over 500 years ago. The façade of the university is decorated with symbols showing power and importance of different sciences. Opposite to the university is situated Santa Crus School – one more old and beautiful building decorated with stone carvings. There is a small chapel in the inner garden of the school.
