Plaza Mayor de Valladolid, nearly the biggest and oldest square in Spain, dates back to the mid-13th century. It became a milestone in Spanish Baroque architecture after Francisco de Salamanca took charge of its reconstruction, much needed after the 1561 fire. Look toward the center for a statue of the founder of Valladolid, Pedro Ansúrez. On the north end, see the seat of the town hall. Check online for events during your visit, as the city council puts on activities almost every week.

  • It is lovely, lots of bars, places to eat, visit and shop. Lay back to the fullest
  • I spend a lot of time in Valladolid, and I never tire of wandering through its Plaza Mayor. This is one of the loveliest in the country, especially for a large city. During the Christmas season, it is particularly festive.
  • Real heart of a real city. Full with history, people and places to talk, drink or eat!
