Once the summer residence of the Spanish monarchy, Cartuja de Miraflores is a peaceful monastery with breathtaking interiors. Although there are monks that reside and study here in a life of silence, you will probably never see them. There is plenty more to discover, however. Some highlights include the intricate altarpiece and the royal mausoleum of King John II and his wife. Don’t miss the video depicting artwork once stolen from the monastery. Getting here can be difficult without private transportation, but it’s possible to take a bus and walk a short distance to the attraction.

  • I loved it. The Cartuja de Miraflores welcomes you to enter with recorded sound of monks singing. Once inside, the first thing that you perceive is smell of roses. Then I was already amazed seeing the altarpiece by Gil de Siloé. But what really attracted my attention even more was the tomb of Juan II and Isabel of Portugal, parents of Isabella the Catholic. It is made of Alabaster by Gil de Siloé and is a marvel. Simply fantastic. You can trash an hour admiring each of its details. Do not miss it if you're in Burgos.

The building itself is beautiful, has a very beautiful and with great artistic interest altarpiece. Totally recommended
