Living in Valladolid

Valladolid is a Spanish city of around 310,000 people, and is the capital city of a province of the same name. The name itself stems from a period of history when the city was under the caliphate of Al-Walid I, although many call it "Pucela", a nickname of somewhat obscure origins. Whichever name you choose, as an expatriate living in Valladolid you will be able to call one of Europe's most beautiful cities home. Each street is bathed in history, fine architecture and, of course, sunlight. Expats living in Valladolid should check out the city's stunning Cathedral, the Gothic-Plateresque Church of San Pablo, the wonderful Academia de Caballería and the exquisitely sculpted National Sculpture Museum. Alongside this tour de force of architectural beauty, the city's parks are hugely popular – the Campo Grande is particularly impressive – and for culture lovers there are theaters, galleries, museums and as much heritage as any expat in Valladolid could ask for.
