The ex-capital of Spain

Valladolid is know for its history, as it is the former capital of Spain (until 1561), now it is the capital of the province of Valladolid and of the community of Castile and Leon. As this town located in north-central Spain it is a witness to Spanish history, culture and tradition. The Plaza Major is the cities heart and here you can meet fellow tourist or locals and I guarantee you, everyone is up for a chat!

Home of Don Quixote

Valladolid due to its place in Spanish history is the home to many recognized characters, one of them is Cervantes who lived here for a short period of time and who created one of his famous novels "Don Quixote" in Valladolid, even today you can sense his presence in the well preserved Casa de Cervates that is open for tourists.
There is another you can visit, as Christopher Columbus died in Valladolid and today you can also visit his House-Museum, where the navigator spend the last years of his life.
There is a lot to see, hear and experience in Valladolid, so enjoy your stay :)

I called this page the Labirynth city as for me Valladolid is nothing but a huge maize! With little alleys, streets that intersect each other it might be confusing to find your way around. But don't hesistate to ask, the locals are friendly and always willing to help.
