  • I have a house in Burgos and had visited dozens of times, but I had not taken the time to actually visit in such detail. It is magnificent. A place not to be missed, grandiose.

  • A stunning cathedral on the route of st James, also the burial place of the legend El Cid. This is a fantastic town where we spent a few days looking around, there were plenty of things to see but not enough time to see it all. Fantastic status were everywhere and plenty of the 13 century gothic architecture. The cathedral inside was stunning and very ornate wit elaborate carvings and models of worship in lots of places. Tombs of past kings and queens had there special place with a calm that breezed through the magnificent building. Burgos is definitely a place I will revisit 👍
  • Wonderful place to visit, the cathedral is filled with sculpted details, paintings, statues, stained glass windows, historical objects and well decorated rooms. You will spend hours here, just remember to go to the bathroom before. There will be one at the end but so you don't have to cut your time short. I recommend visiting.
