Colegio Mayor de Santa Cruz

Founded by the Cardinal of Mendoza.

Its facade is the first Renaissance art in Spain.This school was founded by Cardinal Mendoza in the XV century. Initially a Gothic design was contemplated, but it then evolved into Plateresque decoration. To it you would have to sum up the Neoclassic reforms by Ventura Rodríguez in the XVIII century. The building has a patio on three floors with a series of semicircular arches. It has a library in which the "Beato de Valcabado" miniature painting by Obeco can be found. In the chapel there is a carving, the "Cristo de la Luz", work of Gregorio Fernández.

Services:
Library, Car-park, Restaurant, Assembly room.


Iglesia de Santa María la Antigua

Gothic temple from the 14th century.

The Church of Santa María la Antigua has a Romanesque tower topped with a pyramid-shaped spire.

The temple was founded in the 11th century by Count Ansúrez. From within this Romanesque construction a beautiful tower remains, topped with a slender pyramid shaped spire (13th century). The primitive church was replaced by what can be seen today, a Gothic church of the 14th century. Its high altarpiece is the work of Juan de Juni and can be found today in the high chapel of the Valladolid Cathedral.
