Valladolid. Plaza Mayor

The Plaza Mayor of Valladolid is rectangular in shape with a statue in the centre of Count Ansúrez by Aurelio Carretero (1903). The plaza was rebuilt by Francisco de Salamanca after the fire of 1561; the reconstruction process was completed in the 17th century. It was the first Plaza Mayor of Castile to have been planned with a regular structure and this system was subsequently repeated in other cities such as Madrid. It is surrounded by arcades which extend into the adjacent streets and its dormer windows were installed in the 18th century.
