Charles V, «A night in Valdestillas»

A program of activities more than complete to commemorate the visit of Emperor Charles V to the town in 1556

Four days full of activities. That is what the city of Valdestillas de Valdestillas has prepared to commemorate the passage of Emperor Charles V in 1556. A Renaissance market, children’s workshops, popular meals… And a route to taste ‘tapas’!

From October 17th until Sunday 21nd, Valdestillas (Valladolid) will receive again the visit of Emperor Charles V.


Permanent events

Four days to enjoy a series of scheduled events, including an exhibition of Renaissance costumes in the city hall’s culture hall —from Friday 18 at 8:00 p.m.—, a historic 16th-century military camp in the Plaza de la Constitución —on Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. It includes instruction of firearms, swords and recreation of the life of the 16th century—, an exhibition of birds of prey also in that place, attractions for children of the time in the Plaza Mayor and a Renaissance market with traditional and handmade products; not forgetting that the church of Our Lady of the Miracle will remain open during the indicated dates of 11 a.m. at 2 p.m. and from 5 p.m. at 8 p.m.

Historical recreation

The most important event scheduled will take place on Saturday, October 19th from 6:30 p.m.: the historical recreation of the arrival of Charles V to Valdestillas. The delegation will take a tour that will start from the hermitage of Cristo del Amparo to the Plaza de la Constitución. Once there, we will proceed to the recreation and appointment of the Royal Innkeeper, an honor that falls this year on David Muriel, development technician of the City of Medina del Campo and coordinator of the Renaissance Week, from the balcony of the town hall.

Other events

And all this without forgetting other activities that will take place throughout the four days, such as the launch of arrows by the Royal Archers Guard of Corps from the balcony of the town hall, or a pyrotechnic show on the facade of The old schools.

 And a route to taste ‘tapas’ included! Here we leave the route and establishments adhered to the initiative:

Consequently, a program to enjoy the passage of Emperor Carlos V through Valdestillas.
