ST. Paul's Church was built by drawing from the remnants of the old palace of Alfonso X the Wise. The Prince D. Juan Manuel constructed the current convent in the style of Gothic-Mudejar in the year 1324. In the XVI century, the great-grandson of the Prince built on Plateresque Family of Manuel Funeral Chapel. Its main emphasize is the great Gothic-Mudejar apse.
For me, this is the most beautiful church in the city of Valladolid, capital of the autonomous community of Castilla y Leon. It is a Gothic church dating from the fourteenth century, with a beautiful Romanesque tower surmounted by a pyramidal spire. Outwardly speaking, a Gothic style prevails. The altarpiece of the church of Santa María la Antigua, was made by Juan de Juni, but today is kept in the Chapel of the Cathedral of Valladolid. Worship Hours: Monday to Saturday at 9:00, 9:30 and 19:15 h. Sundays at 10:15, 11:15 and 19:15 h. Price: Free admission.
I deviated from my route on my way back home and stopped by the Church of San Benito, near the main square of Valladolid, where coincidentally a procession was also taking place. It's a beautiful church to visit, along with the surrounding buildings, a market and an exhibition hall (usually showing photography exhibitions).
As you can see in the photos, the Nuestra Señora Reina de la Paz is not your typical church: the facade is a giant arch symbolizes the Order of the Capuchin Monks. The church is located in Plaza de España in Valladolid and it's popular among visitors who are struck by the giant arch and need to satisfy their curiosity. On the inside, there's a beautiful glass cross on the roof where the light filters in and, of course, the Cristo de Media, a famous statue of Jesus that's carried through the town during Semana Santa. Aside from being a popular place for visitors, it's also a nice place to meditate or simply have a moment of peace and quiet.
