  • The procession of the Santísimo Cristo de la Luz (Holy Thursday, 11:00). The procession is part of the Santa Cruz Palace, seat of the Rectorate of the University. Santísimo Cristo de la Luz (Gregorio Fernández, h. 1630). Property of the National Museum of sculpture, is assigned indefinitely to the Universidad de Valladolid, that houses it in the chapel of the Palace of Santa Cruz. Praised by writers and historians (is called La Perla), is one of the masterpieces of its author, who captured the attitude of the Christ in the age of the Cathedral of Plasencia altarpieces, 1625, and the Cartuja de Aniago, 1634. It was a long time in the chapel of the Daza, the convent of San Benito the Real, current of the Santísimo Cristo del Consuelo; in 1843 it appears already outlined in the Provincial Museum of fine arts, from 1863 to 1913 to the chapel of the Colegio de San Gregorio, headquarters of the National Museum of sculpture, being transferred to the University of Valladolid in 1940, that it is home to the chapel of the Palace of Santa Cruz.

  • A building with a monumental exterior. On the inside you can see a typical Castilian Palace. It also houses the Museum of African art, which is truly recommended.
