Get to know Valladolid
Valladolid is currently the capital of the Autonomous Community of Castilla y León and the former capital of the Kingdom of Castilla. The city is very well connected to Madrid, only 55 minutes away by high-speed train. Valladolid preserves an important monumental heritage in its old town, especially noble houses, and religious buildings. Two annual events are worthy of mention: the Seminci, International Film Week, an obligatory date on the Spanish film calendar, and Holy Week, declared to be of International Tourist Interest, in whose processions you will find authentic works of art from the Castilian imagination. In the province of Valladolid, you can find the best vineyards and wineries of the Ribera del Duero Designation of Origin: Vega Sicilia, Pesquera de Duero, etc., and the Provincial Wine Museum in Peñafiel, one of the most important in Spain.
