Route through places of interest in Tordesillas

On the banks of the river Duero, Tordesillas has become, due to its history, one of the main cities of Castilla-León. It has built its long career thanks to its wealth of heritage added to its good communication with the different locations in the rest of Spain., that are highlighted by many cities in the country. further, This was where the well-known Juana La Loca hid, that actually treasured the name of Queen Juana I. This route through Tordesillas will take us to know the best places to visit in this Valladolid city.

One of the places that you cannot miss in your life in Tordesillas is to visit the Real Santa Clara Monastery. On the ledge of the river Duero and protected by the old city walls. Being one of the best examples of Mudejar art in Castilla y León and a sample of the admiration of the Christian kings for the luxury and sophistication of the Andalusian culture..

His style is a hybrid of Romanesque and Gothic, with the royal emblems always present, makes a memorable impact. It was built in the 14th century, ordered to be built by King Alfonso XI and has different parts such as the church, Chapel and courtyard of Vergel. Without a doubt, this monument is the jewel in the crown of the city of Tordesillas.

After contemplating one of the best monuments in the city, you can take a visit to the historic center of the town and thus visit the Plaza Mayor of Tordesillas. This space has become the nerve center of the town. Built in the SXVI, this small and artistic square maintains the traditional Castilian architecture. Square, porticoed and full of balconies with large windows.

The streets that surround the Plaza Mayor are the oldest and in them we can see beautiful medieval houses from the 16th century and palaces such as El Palace of the Alderete, who was alderman of Tordesillas in the 15th century, and built his home on Calle San Antolín, It has the appearance of a fortress due to the battlements that crown one of its sides. Located in this square you can walk towards the river that can be seen from this and thus visit the Church of San Antolín. Declared a Site of Cultural Interest the 30 April 1998.

This wonderful ashlar and brick stone building is divided into sections with chapels on the sides. On the Epistle side, the Chapel of the Alderete is attached, which constitutes the noblest part of the temple, founded at the end of the 15th century, and built throughout the 16th century according to the Flemish Gothic stylistic rules of the time. The rest of the church was built in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, gothic style. Today this church has been set up as a museum, Museum of Sacred Art San Antolín. In this museum we can find the best pieces from the churches of Tordesillas. They highlight a Reclining Christ from the school of Gregorio Fernández, an Immaculate Conception of Pedro de Mena, an altarpiece with sculptures by Juan de Juni and the alabaster tomb made in 1550 by Gaspar de Tordesillas, among others. Very close to the Plaza Mayor de Tordesillas is one of the favorite places for both residents and tourists: the Bodegas Muelas. Placing ourselves in the land of wine, this visit is essential and there are also very interesting guided tours in this underground winery..

As it could not be missing in a city of treaties like Tordesillas we find The Treaty Houses. Both Renaissance and united palaces are two united palaces. Its importance lies in the fact that the negotiations that gave rise to the Treaty of Tordesillas were held there, by which Spain and Portugal divided the New World, giving rise to Latin America..

As a representation of the marked history of Juana La Loca we can enjoy his statue next to the Houses of the Treaty. This monument pays tribute to this figure who in 1.509 was confined in a palace in Tordesillas due to her mental incapacity to govern, until his death in 1.555. It is a sculpture of the queen wearing her crown in her left hand, made in bronze in the year 2003 by the sculptor Hipólito.

In a Castilian city like Tordesillas, the historic bridges deserve a special mention and this town has the Medieval Bridge which is a great work of ashlar masonry, treasures ten eyes, and between the arches there are triangular cutwaters. With these visits we can relax in an unforgettable space such as camping and Scorching restaurant El Astral. This combination of relaxation to sleep and breathe with nature, As well as enjoying the good Castilian-Leonese gastronomy of this restaurant that specializes in grilled meat from its own breeding, it will be your perfect closure to this fun route full of history and heritage wealth..
