Military Cavalry Academy (Academia de Caballería)

11 reviews of Military Cavalry Academy (Academia de Caballería)

Academy of Cavalry

Great

Cavalry Academy of Valladolid is in the center of town, on the Paseo Zorrilla and opposite Campo Grande. It is a style of building that was very common in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Today it is a museum dedicated to weapons. I did not go, but I have heard that it houses a collection of very interesting toy soldiers. A highlight is the Benlliure sculpture made in 1931 to honor the Cavalry, situated in the front of the building. There is also a tribute to the Regiment Alcantara, the only Army unit that won a Laureate of San Fernando after the disaster of Annual in 1921.
