Nice first visit which illustrates very well not only the importance of the Ferias of Medina del Campo, but the general economic system and international connections in late medieval and renaissance times in general.

Medina del Campo (about 1/2 hour on the train from Valladolid, toward Madrid) has a number of worthwhile attractions, and this is one of them. In the 15th-17th centuries, this town had one of Europe's most prominent markets (think merchants from Flanders, Italy, Portugal, etc.), and this museum explains all about it. There are well-designed displays on the different trades exercised here, how the money changers worked, the measures used to weigh goods, the textiles bought and sold here, the art (this was a major marketplace for Renaissance paintings and sculpture), etc. The foundation has a staff of five, all of whom are actively involved in research of various types. They're the ones who greet visitors at the door, and work at the book counter, and they love to explain their museum. The explanations next to displayed items are only in Spanish, but there are excellent audioguides available in English. This town and its market played a significant role in Spanish history and in European trade (also from the Americas), and it's great that there's this nice museum dedicated to it.
