I've been to Valladolid once with two postcrossing friends. Unfortunately we couldn't find any cards, I think it was siesta time and the stores were closed. Now I finally have nice cards from there.

Magdalena Church was ordered to rebuild in 1566 by Don Pedro de la Gasca, Viceroy of Peru and Bishop of Palencia and Sigüenza, as a funeral pantheon. The church was designed by Rodrigo Gil de Hontañón and built by Francisco del Río. It has a single and spacious nave with a headboard under starry ribbed vaults and an altarpiece, the work of Esteban Jordán, who also made the tomb, carved in alabaster, of the Bishop Founder.
The main Renaissance facade, flanked by a tower, is presided over by the image of Mary Magdalene and the monumental noble shield of its promoter.

The Church of Santa María de La Antigua, founded by Count Ansúrez in the 11th century, is a temple that stands out for its elegance and beauty and is one of the best known symbols of Valladolid.
La Antigua has undergone numerous modifications over the years, which have only added to its charm. From the XIII century it preserves the Romanesque style tower and portico.
The current church, Gothic style, replaced the old church in the 14nth century. In the middle of the 16th century the famous Rodrigo Gil de Hontañón reinforced it with new flying buttresses and buttresses given its ruined state. The last restoration was carried out from 1900 to 1952 to give it its current appearance.
