Academy of Cavalry
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.
