Arco de Santa Maria, Burgos

4.6
Once an integral section of the massive defensive wall surrounding ancient Burgos, Arco de Santa Maria today serves as a reminder of the city’s grand heritage. The gate’s castle-like appearance was crafted in 1553 as a grandiose entrance to the town center. Admire its medieval-style towers, which form a crown around its roof, as well as the many inset sculptures of famous historical Castilians. Explore the inside of the building to view a large mural painted on the interior, along with occasional small art or historical exhibits.
