VALLADOLID — A group of Tourism students of the University of Valladolid (CUV) recently took a tourist tour through various points of the city, with the aim of knowing the history that it offers to the tourists who visit it.

As part of their preparation in tourism, the students visited the Catholic parks and churches of the neighborhoods, where they explained the history of each one.

The journey that the young people conducted on their bicycles through the streets of the city attracted the attention of the local people. The students were escorted by municipal police to prevent them being hit or an accident occurring.

The activity was done so that the students know everything related to the concept of ecotourism, since it is one of the products that are most promoted in the city and the State.

Students visited the surroundings and the parish of San Bernardino of Siena, the temple of San Servacio and the chapels of La Candelaria, San Juan, Santa Lucía and Santa Ana, as well as the Calzada de los Frailes and the Historic Center.

The explanations were conducted by Tourism instructors of the university, so that later they can do a research work as part of its preparation in the matter.
