Housed inside the Colegio de San Gregorio, National Sculpture Museum contains an array of sculptures dating from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. Wooden polychrome pieces, which come mainly from convents, donations, and state acquisitions, figure prominently in the collection. You can usually only admire these pieces from a distance at Spain’s churches and cathedrals, but here you can inspect their intricate details up close. From the outside the cathedral, admire the intricate facade of the 15th-century Colegio de San Gregorio.

  • I was years ago and I've taken me a pleasant surprise to see the renovation that has suffered. It is obligatory to visit in Valladolid. It consists of three buildings of great historical value. Essential to meet Berruguete. Impressive altarpiece of the convent of San Benito, that has been possible to preserve in this museum. In one of the buildings there is exposed a Neapolitan Nativity scene as he had never seen. I recommend it if you are visiting Valladolid.

  • Only the building, Colegio de San Gregorio, is worth the entry (3€), so that imagine. Before entering, you have that locate in the façade a snail, animo!. The inner courtyard of the building is amazing including the stairs for access to the second floor, with some very skilled workers relief (the ropes seemed real, not of stone) and coffered ceilings in spectacular wood ceiling. You're visiting the rooms, very spacious with different sculptures and paintings from the middle ages and the Baroque. I was amazed at the realism of the sculptures in wood and its antiquity (1500s for example, q quality of conservation). Ah! And do not fail to visit the Church with statues of bronze of the Duke of Lerma and his wife (designed by the same artist that did the Emperagor Charles V's). They are very similar...
