Valladolid oozes history from every ancient stone. King Felipe II was born here, the Catholic Monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabel, married here and Christopher Columbus died here. Once the capital of Spain, it’s now the principal city of Castilla y Leon, the land of castles from which the word ‘Castilian’ derives. Today, Valladolid is a bustling university city that thrives on its manufacturing industries. It’s a down-to-earth, lively place that energetically blends old with new.
