Cheap Car Hire Valladolid
125 miles north of Madrid, Valladolid has a history tied up with some of the most important figures in Spanish and European history. Christopher Columbus died in Valladolid. Phillip II was born here and Isabella and Ferdinand were married here. It’s easy to see why the city has a special place in the hearts of the Spanish. The centre is busy and quite noisy, but there are plenty of treats amongst the bustle. The city boasts some excellent museums, including the Museo Oriental, with superb exhibits on oriental and Asian culture, and the Museuo Nacional De Escultura, a celebration of Spanish culture in a series of colourful displays. For something a little different, why not pay a visit to the Museum of Wine and find out more about the making (and drinking!) of this endlessly popular drink.
