  • I very much enjoyed my visit to the Burgos cathedral. It was very visually appealing from the inside, as it is not dark as many cathedrals I visited but instead very light and white. I agree with...

  • Awesome! A huge and fantastic cathedral, full of story and art, speaking of the city, of Spain and of the whole Christianity. The Burgos cathedral is a landmark and a distinctive symbol of this beautiful city, and of the whole region. Most of the historical part of the city spins around the cathedral, if only for its very size! I visited it thoroughly twice and I was in awe both times. It is truly an essential and exciting visit. A must see: definitely, don't go to Burgos without visiting its hallmark!
  • I have visited so many cathedrals while I have been in Spain but this one is a must see. You are able to get much closer than normal to the alter and other artifacts. Behind the main alter there are some exquisite carved displays. There is also the bonus of the museum of other paintings and other artifacts. This is a cathedral you should visit.
