A fun trip for kids

The city offers unique tourist attractions, but when you have children with you it’s difficult to find the right tour, so we recommend a trip to la Plaza Mayor (The Main Plaza), one of the biggest plazas in Spain, which is next to the city hall and offers weekly events such as concerts, fairs, competitions, or Ferrari exhibitions. Together with your children, enjoy el Campo Grande (The Big Field), the biggest park in Valladolid, with its trees, flowers, animals, waterfall, games, and even a pond where you can go on a boat ride, or visit the many museums (museos) in the vicinity.

The Church of Saint Mary of La Antigua (Iglesia de Santa María de La Antigua)

This church stands out due to its beauty and elegance; it is a symbol of the city.

We also recommend taking a walk through the city's historic district, which has been declared a Historic Area and features a number of renaissance palaces. The most important streets in the historic district are Mambrilla, Francos, Platerías (Silversmiths), Plaza Ochavo, and el Canal de Castilla. This area is full of palaces, museums, convents, and churches.

The best vistas of the city of Valladolid are from San Benito's Church (la Iglesia de San Benito), which is next to San Benito's Monastery; it's the oldest one in the city. Valladolid Cathedral, which was built in the 16th century, is famous for the fact that it was never completed: it's known as "The Unfinished."
