It is a bit of a hike from Burgos, however, there is always a clearly marked and separate footpath. So although not hiking through greenery most of the time, it is an ok walk. Note that there are very few busses, so counting on them...More

The place is medium sized. There are exhibits of the Miraflores antiques. There are some videos to show their history. You can donate a euro and some statues light up. There is no english explanation for some exhibits. But, the colours are all pretty nice....More

It is a must go. It was almost all built in the times of Isabella I, the Catholic and it is a wonderful example of gothic art.

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 was our favourite place to visit in Burgos, the visit is limited to the church and a small museum but the atmosphere is very special. The staff is welcoming and there is plenty of interpretive information in English. Entry is free but donations are...More
