The Airport of Valladolid is quite modern, though it operates with a restricted schedule (7 AM to 22 PM).

Less than 200 kilometers away from Madrid, Valladolid is one of Spain’s most important northern cities. Valladolid acts as court seat and capital of the Autonomous Community of Castilla y León.
The city was formally established in the year 1072, over previous settlements of roman origin. Since the very beginnings, Valladolid was considered an important city by the then spanish royal families, acting as royal residence in a number of occasions and receiving both commercial and religious benefits.
A number of medieval kings were born in Valladolid, notably Henry I of Castile and John I of Castile. Queen Isabella I of Castile celebrated her marriage with Ferdinand II of Aragon in the Vivero Palace, one of Valladolid’s emblematic historical buildings. The royal privileges peaked in 1601, when Valladolid was appointed as the capital of an ascending Spanish Empire. This status would last until the year 1606; after that, the city declined until the arrival of the first textile workshops in the late 17th century.
The closeness to spanish royal powers converted Valladolid into one of the Spanish Inquisition’s hubs. As a consequence, socioeconomic progress lagged until the late 18th century. Development would arrive in the form of engineering works like Castile’s Canal, railroads, financial services, printed press and urban improvements.
