Valladolid

leave a comment »

Named after a Spanish leader’s hometown, Valladolid was established in 1860. Located in Negros Occidental, one of the town’s primary attractions is the Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, which was built in 1851. According to the Negros Occidental government website:

“In 1851, the Recollect Missionaries laid the foundation of the Valladolid Church, said to be the biggest in the province at that time. Considering the power of church authorities as they run the affairs of the government then, the size of its church and convent is proof that Valladolid was among the province’s most progressive pueblos during the Spanish era.”

The Humay-Humay Festival is held every February 28th to celebrate the annual harvest.

Valladolid, Spain is located in the community of Castilla y León.
