Valladolid is a great city, the capital of Castile and León, which stands out for its economic drive, its urban expansion, and its good communications.
The city has an international airport, a renewed, extensive road network, and excellent railway connections linked to the high-speed network.
Its high-level hotels, most of them recently built, make it the best destination to host large events and congresses. Its establishments stand out due to the modernity and charm of their environment, the historic, tourist, and commercial centre.
Both the venues hosting trade fairs, meetings, and conferences and companies specialised in organising and running them are perfectly adapted to the needs and services required from each client, which ensures the success of any event.
In Valladolid there are many venues to choose from to satisfy every need and taste.
These include the Centro de Congresos of the Valladolid Trade Fair, which has all the infrastructures required to host events ranging from large annual trade fairs to small meetings; the Centro Cultural Miguel Delibes, a majestic complex designed by architect Ricardo Bofill, which has an auditorium that seats 1,700 and small rooms, multi-use areas, and a hall for exhibitions and stands; the Palacio Centro de Congresos Conde Ansúrez, affiliated with the University of Valladolid; the Calderón de la Barca Theatre, where the Seminci International Film week is held every year; and the Centro Cultural San Agustín very near the high-speed train station.
Above all, Valladolid is a great city because of its monumental, leisure, gastronomic, and cultural heritage. Merely listing its monuments proves it: palaces such as Pimentel and Real; churches such as San Pablo and La Antigua, etc. It also has more than twenty museums, including such relevant ones as the Nacional Colegio de San Gregorio, the Science Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Spanish Art, and the Oriental Museum.
Its gastronomic culture deserves special attention. Its restaurants, hotels, and inns are outstanding, subtly mixing traditional local fare such as tapas with avant-garde touches, washed down with excellent wines from the five local Designations of Origin: Ribera del Duero, Cigales, Rueda, Toro, and León. These are wines that can be tasted and enjoyed while visiting local wineries. These tours can be supplemented with a visit to the Wine Museum in Peñafiel Castle.
Valladolid: a place to work, a place to enjoy.
