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 - Homenaje a Jorge Guillén

Tribute to Jorge Guillén and Childhood

This 'Tribute to Jorge Guillén and Childhood', inaugurated in 1998, is the work of sculptor Luis Santiago Pardo, who is also the author of the neighboring tribute to Rosa Chacel.

It is a representation in a hyper-realistic style and at life-size scale of the writer. The ensemble includes an oval-shaped pond, giving it an urbanistic component, on whose ledge Jorge Guillén rests alongside two children playing with paper boats in the water. As a tribute to the poet, the bronze boats 'sailing' in the pond bear the names of two of his most remembered works, 'Cántico' and 'Clamor'.

Jorge Guillén was born in 1893 on Constitution Street in Valladolid, where a bronze plaque can be seen marking his birthplace. This plaque is also the work of Luis Santiago Pardo. He resided in this city throughout his childhood and youth, and it is here where the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War caught him, an event that, like for so many Spaniards, would mark the rest of his life.
