Valladolid The Essential
Home of the itinerant court of Castile, Valladolid benefited from the construction of beautiful monuments in the 15C and 16C and developed a school of sculpture renowned throughout the Iberian Peninsula. Its churches and palaces are good examples of the different Renaissance architectural styles, such as Isabelline, Herreran and Plateresque. Valladolid is now an industrial metropolis, enlivened by its university and lavish Holy Week processions.
