Create an itinerary including Cartuja de Miraflores
Once the summer residence of the Spanish monarchy, Cartuja de Miraflores is a peaceful monastery with breathtaking interiors. Although there are monks that reside and study here in a life of silence, you will probably never see them. There is plenty more to discover, however. Some highlights include the intricate altarpiece and the royal mausoleum of King John II and his wife. Don’t miss the video depicting artwork once stolen from the monastery. Getting here can be difficult without private transportation, but it’s possible to take a bus and walk a short distance to the attraction.

  • The entrance fee is voluntary and the site has as a major element the grandiose tomb of kings of Castille and Leon. It is worth checking the bus timetable as the walk from town is quite long.

  • Stunning altarpiece. Worth visiting if you have a car and a GPS. There isn’t really much else to see but what you do see is first class
  • Please don't say no to walk to this place from the center of Burgos. First you will walk through one of the finest gardens in the city, Fuentes Blancas. When you get there, just letras you enjoy with a gothic 1484 year building and open your eyes to carefully admire the chapel and the tomb of Juan II of Castilla and Isabel from Portugal . Such a nice sculpture you can spend hours looking at the details.... and when back in Burgos, drink a cup of Ribera del Duero to remember what you have been watching!!!!!
