My name is Raúl, I have a degree in Art History, with a master's degree in "Art, Museums and Historical Heritage Management". I have been an official tourist guide for over 6 years. I have worked as a guide in different cities such as Granada, Seville, Florence, Malaga, Merida, Cáceres, Trujillo and, for 3 years, in Palencia, León and Astorga. The fact of being able to work as a guide in these cities offers me the possibility of knowing them a little better day after day, since in this work, the training must be continued to offer a service with the highest possible quality. Committed to tourist quality, since I am one of the few guides in León who can boast having the "Tourist Quality Commitment" Seal. Come and discover Leon and Astorga with me, surely you have a great time.

About the tour

Join us on this Guruwalk through the city of Valladolid, where we will tour the main streets and squares and get to know the most emblematic monuments of the capital of Pisuerga. We will begin our tour in the Plaza Mayor, the nerve center of the city. From there we will go to the nearby Plaza de Fuente Dorada and the little known Pasaje Gutiérrez, one of the few nineteenth-century commercial passages that are still preserved in Spain. Later we will arrive at the Cathedral, whose works were never finished although if it had been completed it would have been the largest Christian temple in Europe. Not far away is the University of Valladolid, one of the first in our country and through which illustrious characters like Quevedo or Delibes passed. Going down we will arrive at Nuestra Señora de la Antigua which, as the name implies, is the oldest temple in Valladolid, in which its well-known tower stands out. We cannot forget another of the most emblematic churches, Las Angustias, headquarters of one of the most important brotherhoods in the city and with works by prominent figures such as Gregorio Fernández or Francisco de Rincón. Later we will arrive at the San Martín neighborhood, where some of the wealthiest families in Valladolid lived. Finally, after passing through the house of another illustrious Valladolid, José Zorrilla, we will arrive at the Plaza de San Pablo, a space full of monuments and where some of the most important historical events in our country have taken place. In this Plaza we will know places like Colegio San Gregorio, one of the best examples of the final Gothic we have in Spain, the Pimentel Palace, where Felipe II was born, the majestic facade of San Pablo or the Royal Palace, where Emperor Carlos V He was staying when he visited the city and it was even the residence of Napoleon himself as he passed through Valladolid.

Javier, nuestro guia, fue fantástico. Conocía muy bien la historia y anécdotas de la ciudad. Respondía a todas nuestras preguntas. Se nos pasó la visita muy rápida, la hizo muy amena.

Solemos hacer este tipo de visitas en las ciudades que visitamos y es de las mejores que hemos tenido.

Hola Paloma. Que alegría más grande leer un comentario tan positivo como este. Mi compañero Javi es un gran experto, un conocedor de los secretos de Valladolid, y siente gran pasión por lo que hace, por eso el tiempo con él pasa volando. Un saludo y hasta el próximo viaje.

Muy buen guía. Total dominio de la Historia. Además, aliña los datos objetivos con toques de leyendas y rumorología, tan necesarios para mantener la atención y la curiosidad del oyente.

Deberíais tener un tour diario al menos. Para los que viajamos la semana entera.

Response from Raúl:

Buenos días, Ana. Me alegra que haya disfrutado de la visita con mi colega Javi, que es un experto en la ciudad y se la conoce al detalle. Durante los meses de julio, agosto y septiembre tenemos la ruta todos los días menos los martes y miércoles, así que hay bastantes días en semana en los que poder disfrutar del recorrido. Un abrazo y un saludo para Huelva!
