The Palacio de Pimentel is the home of the provincial government and was the birthplace of Philip II in 1527, because the Royal Family had no palace at that time in Valladolid, while the Pimentel family had this beautiful palace. It boasts of a beautiful patio and in the entrance there are beautiful azulejos of modern ceramic tiles done by the artist Juan Ruiz de Luna, showing scenes of the history of Valladolid during the lifetime of Philip II.
