Burgos Cathedral


One of the finest examples of Spanish Gothic art. It is home to the remains of El Cid Campeador, Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar and his wife Jimena. A highlight inside is the ‘Flycatcher', a small statue that opens its mouth on the hour and moves its arm holding a bell. There are 19 side chapels and a gilded stairway with renaissance inspiration. The stairway is closed to the public except on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. The main façade is the ‘Puerta del Perdón' or Door of Forgiveness with a large star rose window and a gallery of statues of the Castile monarchs. On either side are the towers, crowned by spires with open stonework traceries. The Sarmental Door is one of the most beautiful from the three entrance doorways. It is the only cathedral in Spain to be declared itself a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
