  • He considered that on a visit to Burgos it is an essential, to say that the entrance is 12o per person, but it is guided -be careful that if the group has completed you will have to wait until the next view-, the monastery is beautiful, in addition the guided visit helps to squeeze all history, the state of conservation is optimal, and in the end they let you see the museum freely, where it has clothes of the time.

  • Burgos is cathedral, Atapuerca, fresh... and few are offered a visit to this beautifully preserved and wonderfully explained jewel by the guides. It is the story of the most powerful medieval women on the peninsula... and so far I want to count. The rest must be enjoyed personally.

  • You can only visit this place on a guided tour that lasts about 1 hour. The problem with this is that the guide only communicates in Spanish, so unless you are fluent in Spanish you have no idea what you are looking at which is a great shame because the place is full of history, they should take note how well the cathedral organise the visits there which are excellent in in every language
  • What a wonderful place to visit - it is worth the effort to head around 1 mile west of the city centre to see this amazing monastery and the tombs of Castillian monarchs.
