Theme day: Landmark

Most certainly, one of the landmarks in the city is St. Paul´s Church and its surrounding area, in which several palaces and museums are clustered. Please, click on the picture to see all the details of the facade, really spectacular. And here to view thumbnails for the rest of participants in this theme day

Movember... about to start. This year VDP´s ambassador is playwright and poet Leopoldo Cano, who invites of all us, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas, to sign up to grow or support the moustache for the 30 days of Movember, raising funds and awareness for men’s health along the way.

Escaparates con Arte 2014

Shop windows with Art, promoted by Union Artistica Vallisoletana, transforms the city center into a huge pictorial gallery as artists are using the windows of commercial establishments (in the picture, a flower shop at Calle Val) to show the result of their paintbrushes. The initiative appears to be linked to the celebration on October 25th of the Painting International Day. You can enjoy this exciting initiative until November 2nd.

La Mejillonera will change its location

After 44 years at calle Pasión, this iconic bar will move to calle Héroes del Alcazar.

One of the specialties are the patatas bravas. You must try them on your first visit.

Del Val Market update

One year after its forced change of location, that's how the inside looks. The external structure is kept almost completely. For now, works seem to be long yet.

O is for Opening Gala!

Last Saturday I was lucky to attend the Opening Gala of the SEMINCI (you known, the Valladolid International Film Festival). During the event, two Spike of Honor were given to actress Veronica Forqué and Korean director Bong Joon Ho (in the picture) in recognition of their careers.

But before the glamor of the Gala, during the popular Red Carpet, besides the fans, also several groups attended to make their claims more visible. Such as Calderón Theatre workers, calling for the fulfillment of all their rights.
