Palace from the Renaissance
Jan 2020
This is one of the oldest palaces in Valladolid. It was built in the 15th century. It is one of the main buildings of the University of Valladolid. The facade is beautiful and in the inside, there is an awesome chapel with a statue of Christ.

Another beautiful building with a nice plaza in front
Dec 2019 • Solo
The city has quite a few beautiful buildings that just pop up, seemingly out of nowhere. Nice plaza in front, with flowers blooming, despite the 35 degree weather. Just a nice place to sit and observe the beautiful building and watch people pass by.

Interesting place to stay, the library has remarkable old books
Apr 2019
I stayed in a guest room there at the invitation of the University of Valladolid. The room was fine, but the breakfast was rather meager - we ate with the students. The people working there were very nice and accommodating. The front building is the offices of the University administration, and they have a remarkable library with first editions of books by Isaac Newton and many others. If they give you a tour of the books, it is very interesting. The building itself is nice, but not remarkable.

A Place to View and Wander in the Garden
Apr 2018 • Friends
The Palacio de Santa Cruz on one side has the Colegio Jesus Mara Maria Carmelitas de La carded for teenagers and their is the University (Ayuntamiento de Valladolid) The area is full of students wandering around the plaza. The main building has a courtyard three floor and has been modernized with three large rectangular information pieces about Spain adventures, the first is the globe of the world once 1522 to 2018, the second is spanish writer that have changed spain,third is the first circumnavigational of the world. Lastly 1492-1518, 500 years ago man dreamt a voyage. These all have to do with education of man. Behind the building is a simple garden with a pond and then there is the residency of the student.This place also has a museum on the second floor and their exhibition changes, it is worth checking out what exhibition is on. A simple place to wander--don't spend too much time there. There is no cost except the museum

Beautiful Palace and African Museum
Sep 2017 • Couples
The Santa Cruz Palace was built by the powerful Cardinal Mendoza in 1491. The courtyard is very beautiful. The African Art Center in the palace is the best museum of African art in Spain and is quite interesting.

Today the palace belongs to the University and young people study here.

Lovely architecture in this old building.
Oct 2016
Along with the University building, the Palacio de Santa Cruz was part of the original 13th century institution (or before). It possesses a lovely interior patio and its library is superb. The library is not open to the public but anyone truly interested in it can probably get permission to see it. It contains the original charter to the city as well and many important documents and texts.
