  • Aerial view of the city of Burgos

Its imposing Gothic cathedral is the only cathedral with the World Heritage designation for itself alone. An excellent idea for your visit is to stroll around the historic centre of the city and sample the local products and its famous wine.Read more...

What to see To get an overall view of the city the best plan is to head to the foot of the Cerro del Castillo. In the historic centre you can see the arch and the church of San Esteban. But if there's one thing that's sure to make an impression it's the cathedral itself, with its towers topped with spires and the Escalera Dorada (golden staircase). Take your time to enjoy it. Burgos is also home to beautiful noble buildings such as the El Cordón house, where Ferdinand and Isabella received Christopher Columbus. Another two interesting monuments are the royal monastery of Las Huelgas Reales and the Cartuja de Miraflores monastery, whose altarpiece –according to tradition– was gilded with the first gold brought to Spain after the discovery of America. Recommended excursions Although they're not in the city of Burgos, it would be a pity not to make the most of your visit to see the nearby archaeological site of Atapuerca and the monastery of Santo Domingo de Silos. And incidentally, Burgos is also a stop on the Way of Saint James. Gastronomy Burgos has previously been named Spanish Gastronomy Capital. Its milk-fed lamb roasted in a wood-burning oven and the black pudding from Burgos are deservedly famous. And as for wine, try one from the Ribera de Duero area, exquisite and typical of the region.
