Lugares - Arte público - Ruta de murales

Mural Art Route

Valladolid embraces urban art to reclaim forgotten corners of public spaces, creating a friendly city for its residents and an appealing destination for tourism.

Following in the footsteps of cities like Berlin, New York, and London, Valladolid started a grant program in 2016 to encourage local artists to decorate plain walls and facades, transforming them into genuine works of art.

Since 2019, the City Council and the association Andén 47 have collaborated closely, united by the goal of revitalizing the urban space through art. The project, renamed as the 'Vertical District,' maintains an ongoing call for property owners and community associations to offer their buildings as canvases (registrations can be made at

Lugares - Arte urbano - Don Juan Tenorio, embozado

Don Juan Tenorio, embozado

'"Don Juan Tenorio, embozado" is a sculpture created by the Valladolid sculptor and image-maker Miguel Ángel Tapia. It pays tribute to the most remembered character of Valladolid poet José Zorrilla. The statue is located on Fray Luis de Granada Street, next to the entrance of the romantic garden of the writer's birthplace.

Made of life-sized bronze, it depicts the figure of the knight Don Juan Tenorio in a lurking attitude. The original sculpture is equipped with a sensor that, when activated by movement, triggers a voice recording with Don Juan uttering the popular phrase, "¡Alto! ¡Quién va!" ("Halt! Who goes there?"), which is characteristic of the speech of Spanish knights in the 16th century, the era in which the play is set. These words are also spoken by the character in the first part of Zorrilla's drama when he encounters Don Luis Mejía near the house of Doña Ana de Pantoja, Mejía's promised bride and the target of Juan's dubious bet with his friend.
