Valladolid - Shopping
The main shopping street is Calle de Santiago, which runs between Plaza Mayor and Plaza de Zorrilla. Centro Comercial Las Francesas at number 22 is worth a visit: the shopping complex resides in an old eighteenth-century convent. To the east of Calle de Santiago lies Calle Mantería which is a pedestrianized walkway featuring shoes, clothes, cakes and many other delightful things. The big brands tend to cluster on Paseo de Zorrilla, on the western flank of Campo Grande. El Corte Inglés department store is also here, at number 130-132.
The most famous market in Valladolid is the Mercado del Val. Built in the late nineteenth-century, this covered market is frequented by locals. Stalls sell everything from fish to flowers and suckling pigs. It’s located on Calle San Benito, opposite the Monasterio de San Benito.
For the hypermarket experience with clothes shops and multi-screen cinema, head over to southwest down Paseo de Zorilla to the point where Camino Viejo de Simancas forks off to the right, and you’ll find Centro Comercial Vallsur. Alternatively take bus number 5 from Plaza de Zorilla. Open from 10.00 to 22.00.
