Overview
More
Miraflores was originally a hunting lodge built by King Enrique III at the beginning of the 15th century and then converted into a monastery by the Carthusian monks, who continue there today. The remarkable church is considered one of the principal monuments of the city of Burgos and contains a royal mausoleum that is the final resting place of King Juan II and his wife Queen Isabel, parents of Queen Isabel "La Catolica". Visitors can look forward to an extraordinary experience of silence, peace and beauty.

If you only have time to see one incredible piece of historic art, see the mausoleum of Juan II and Isabel of Portugal carved and completed in alabaster in 1499 by the Renaissance master Gil de Siloe. It’s beauty and craftsmanship defy belief.

This is the most wonderful Monastery. I think it is an absolutely must see stop around Burgos. I shall go back for another visit, as I could not take all of it in at one go. À merveille du monde.

Well worth a visit. This Carthusian monastery is home to 20 monks who tend the place with loving care. Wonderful church and well worth spending an hour inside. Free entry but donations accepted.

Free to enter, but donations accepted. Self-guided tour take about 30 minutes. Very pretty chapel. For me the highlight were the tombs of Queen Isabel's parents. It is just on the outskirts of Burgos about 15 minutes from the city center. There is free parking...More
