Cartuja de Miraflores, Burgos

4.7
#1 of 43 in Parks in Castile and Leon
Architectural Building Nature / Park
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. Put Cartuja de Miraflores into our Burgos trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 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 ...  more »
