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.

  • La Cartuja is so fantastic that it is not justice when trying to describe it with words only. A unique setting for a unique building make this monument so special and fantastic. In addition, if wasn't enough, the entrance is free, paying out will. What more can ask for?

  • Very nice site where you may have the chance to hear the Gregorian chants of the monks or to attend the mass of the people (standing, about 20 minutes) on Sunday morning at 10:15

  • 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.
