There is plenty to see in the old medieval town which is where Spanish Royals King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella got married in the fifteenth century and where Columbus died in 1506. Valladolid stands on the River Pisuerga with beautiful Renaissance houses, palaces, churches and symbolic cathedral in its old quarter. It is also surrounded by three wine growing areas offering plenty of opportunities to sample local grapes.
The weather here is colder and wetter than in the south of the country (which makes it much more tolerable during the hot months of July and August). If you are in the area over Easter (Santa Semana) there is a big festival here with processions of works of art .
