Valladolid & Wine tasting in a Ribera del Duero winery - From Madrid

We will visit the Plaza de San Pablo, one of the best known squares in Valladolid. Its name is from the church of San Pablo, it is believed that its construction was between the years 1445 and 1468.<br>Then we will go to Ribera del Duro, when we arrive we will visit Curiel Castle which stands on a rocky hill, at the highest point in the province of Valladolid, which watches over the Douro Valley and, at the foot of the hill, the town that gives its name to the castle. The castle stands on a hill next to the Horcajo stream, which discharges into the Douro. We will finish the tour with a visit to the Protos Winery, carried out by Rogers Stirk Harbor + Partners, it is an industrial project where the winemaking process is seen, from the grape harvest to the bottling of the wines. Most of the internal space of the winery is underground, here the thermal mass of the soil is used to keep the wine fresh.

Beautiful architecture, but simple in nature. Easy to find in the middle of town. The surrounding gardens offer a view not available on most of the chuches in Spain.

The outside of this Romanesque church is jus beautiful. It has a very tall sturdy tower with four floors. The first part of the church was built in the 12th century, and the rest of the church is from the 14th century. The inside is very simple; it has vaulted naves and aisles.

Church is sit back from the road a bit, with stones forming the plaza in front of the church side. I really enjoyed looking at the church on a blue sky day. Neat green door too! Behind the large cathedral, about 750 feet

The Church of Saint Mary the Ancient is a 12th-century church in Valladolid, Spain. This impressive and delicate Romanesque construction conserves its attractive tower,amazing architecture in the Old Quater of Valladolid. This is definitely one of the most beautiful buildings in Europe.
