What to do in Valladolid?
Visit Sites of Interest
1. Go to the Central Square of Valladolid, with the central fountain called “la mestiza”. It is the nerve center of the city and you will always find atmosphere. At dusk they usually put street food stalls (try the churros or marquesitas), markets and sometimes dance shows take place.
2. Presiding over the square, the Church of San Servacio rises imposingly, on the façade of which two huge towers stand out and in the middle, the coat of arms of King Felipe V (the first Bourbon king) carved in the stone. It was built in 1543 and is one of the most emblematic places in Valladolid. You can freely enter the interior.
3. Do not leave the square without visiting the interior of the Municipal Palace and looking out to one of its balconies, from where you have beautiful views of the normal bustle of the town under your feet. Access is free and it is undoubtedly one of the best things to see and do in Valladolid.
4. The old Franciscan Convent of San Bernardino de Siena is another visit that cannot be missed on any trip to Valladolid. It is located in the Sisal neighborhood and consists of a church, a chapel and several buildings with a museum on the Caste War inside.
5. To cool off, it is best to visit a cenote, and in this case you won't have to walk far to find the first one: we are talking about the Zací cenote, which is in the middle of the city. (Zací is the Mayan name by which Valladolid was known, and it is pronounced Sachí).
6. If you like art, you should visit the Casa de los Venados, a private house-museum that contains one of the most interesting collections of popular art in all of Mexico. Some 3,000 objects are exhibited, all manufactured in the country.
