What to see The sight of the castle will accompany you everywhere on your arrival. It is marvellously preserved and combines different styles thanks to reconstruction work carried out between the 9th and 15th centuries. Nowadays it houses the Provincial Wine Museum whilst also offering beautiful panoramic views over the city. The Church of San Pablo is a highlight in the town. It is considered to be one of the best examples of Gothic-Mudéjar architecture in the province of Valladolid. Plaza del Coso square also stands out, dating to the Middle Ages to house bull fights. These events are still held today during the festivals of Our Lady and San Roque. It also hosts major activities during the festival of the Bajada del Ángel (a religious representation of the appearance of Archangel Gabriel to Mary held during Easter week). Gastronomy The star ingredient is Ribera del Duero wine and a good way to discover it is to tour some of the wineries in Peñafiel. Excellent dishes to accompany the wines include wood-roasted lamb and sheep’s milk cheese.
