Academia de Caballeria

Once the capital of Spain, the picturesque town of Valladolid was also the birthplace of King Philip II and is situated just 162 km from today’s capital, Madrid. Valladolid is a waterfront town that overlooks the river Pisuerga. The town mixes medieval and modern architecture; some of the best examples are the Valladolid Royal palace and the Palace of the Marquises. Visitors can take a walking tour through the Plaza Zorrilla, close to the famous fountain. The Casa Cervantes was home to the world famous writer and there’s a vast collection of modern art at the Museo Colon in the town where Columbus past away. There’s a ‘Red Wine Route’ that takes visitors through the wine-growing areas, including a visit to the Wine Museum with plenty of wine tasting on the way. There are also many restaurants and tapas bars to choose from that serve the local specialties of pig, lamb and game meat.
