Valladolid is located in the center of the region Castilla y León, under an hour from Madrid taking the high-speed railway. It is said in Spain that in Valladolid it is spoken the ‘best’ Spanish, the purest, which makes its locals really proud of. The river Pisuerga crosses the city and it is a river fluent of El Duero. Does it ring a bell? It is the Region Duero, the heart of the many wineries and bodegas where some of the most complex and flavourful wines are produced, the sought after Designation of Origin (D.O.) Ribera del Duero (Vega Sicilia or Pingus, established by the Dane Peter Sisseck). The entire Ribera del Duero region offers beautiful scenaries, where you can visit amazingly well preserved castles.
The city is the birthplace of Spain, original capital city and residence for the Spanish Kings. When Queen Isabel of Castile and Fernando of Aragon married in 1469 in Palacio De Los Vivero (today in the city center), the two biggest kingdoms melted together into one and created Spain. That is the reason why you are able to find many historical buildings, medieval castles, monasteries, etc.
