Here is a video in which you can see what some Valladolid members of our network of routes were like forty years ago
The passage of time makes us look back with nostalgia. Today we are going to invite you to travel back in time forty years ago to take a tour of some of the members of our network of routes, such as Medina del Campo, Tordesillas, Valladolid and Villalar de los Comuneros.
You probably remember the song ‘How we’ve changed‘, by Presuntos Implicados. It spoke of a friendship – almost a love – over time. The things you love the most, the things you love the most, remain with time, because they are never forgotten.
Today we invite you to take a walk through the past of some of the members of our network of routes. Specifically, four of them: Medina del Campo, Tordesillas, Valladolid and Villalar de los Comuneros. Places that, in one way or another, were imprinted in the life of Emperor Charles V.
Places to be seen with the eyes of the past, to see how the passage of time has transformed what was to become what are now any of those villages and others that appear in the video you can see below (in Spanish).
Places from which, perhaps, the emperor Charles V looked up to realise how high the sky of Castile was – and is – without knowing that it is so because the peasants lifted it up from so much looking at it, as the now eternal Miguel Delibes said.
A journey, in short, to be enjoyed calmly, with a gaze full of nostalgia. A journey to never forget our roots, what we are; and to keep in mind that the essence lasts as long as it is imprinted in our soul, with the pride of feeling part of what will always be, no matter how much the landscape is transformed with the passing of time.
