  • After the fire in the 16th century, Felipe II instructs Francisco de Salamanca the refurbishment of the square and surroundings. The result was a reorganisation and homogenization of trace materials and volumes. Creating thus a space unique in its time. The square as all VALLADOLID has suffered the mistreatment of their aldermen, builders and citizens. No longer what it was. But even so, it is one of the most spectacular places in Valladolid.
