Valladolid is a modern and open city where the latest trends, together with centuries of cultural tradition and historical moments of national and international relevance come together in the same space. Valladolid is a city with a wide cultural offer. You can spend the afternoon visiting one of its museums – we have the best polychrome wood collections in the country in the Museo Nacional de Escultura (National Sculpture Museum) and oriental art at the Museo de Arte Oriental (Oriental Art Museum) and a large catalogue of contemporary Spanish works in the Patio Herreriano. In addition, in the afternoon and at night you will find different proposals for theatre, dance, music or shows for families at Teatro Calderón and at Laboratorio de las Artes de Valladolid (Valladolid Arts Laboratory).
Take advantage of nightfall to discover a completely different Valladolid. The lighting of the historic centre, awarded internationally, invites you to visit, once again, a city of dreamlike airs flooded by Ríos de Luz (Rivers of light).
Without leaving the historic centre we recommend that you visit one of the five municipal exhibition halls, completely free to access, and two houses with a lot of history: the place where José Zorrilla was born and one in which Miguel de Cervantes lived which is the only one among all in Spain that is preserved.
