Cartuja de Miraflores, Burgos

(4.8/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Whenever passing by Burgos I promised to me same visit the Cartuja. Had the ida wrong, and hope not them pass to VDS of that to the treat is of a Charterhouse not would find both an art lush, as an art sober, with less wealth formal. As in good time I have left my mistake and hopefully to you do not have like me. Rather than talk about I think that you should go whether or if... and soon. That Yes, I do not refuse to quote the work of Gil de Siloé in the burial of the Kings Juan II of Castile and Isabel of Portugal, parents of Isabel la Catolica. But there is more... what to do... and how much before.

  • A haven of peace, a space not very big but concentrated on works of art. Really awesome and a must visit.

  • On the outskirts of Burgos, easy to reach and accessible. It is worth to visit it, since the altarpiece is spectacular. Free and friendly.

  • Stunning monastery - no entrance fee (donations encouraged) - well worth a visit.
  • It is a magical place, where you can appreciate religious art at depth. The use of floral aromas in the enclosure makes especially pleasant visit. Very well maintained all, sale of own production of high quality products. Visit very recommendable and better if it is guided.

  • Unknown location, (at least for me). You can not miss it if you go to Burgos. It is small, but with a special charm. As most important data: is the mausoleum of the parents of Isabel the Catholic and has the oldest stained glass in Spain. Much to see and the visit is not very long. Free entrance. Just ask for an (optional) contribution by the guidelines to enhance the visit. The guys who are on the doorstep are very attentive.

  • Wonderful place. Great attention to the entrance. Javna conveys a feeling of peace and tranquility. Spectacular altarpiece by Gil de Siloé. For € 1 you can illuminate it not to lose detail. Very interesting Museum. Sell high quality products made by the monks. Very good hands and face SOAP and also the herb liqueur. Visit more than recommended.

  • Spectacular altarpiece by Gil de Siloé, from the 15TH century. The parents of Isabel La Católica Real pantheon. Sculptures of San Bruno... The whole building is living history. A must if you come to Burgos.
