Castillo de Burgos, Burgos

3.2
#6 of 9 in Historic Sites in Burgos
Castle Tourist Spot
With a period of construction spanning some 500 years, Castillo de Burgos still impresses visitors as a fortress sitting 75 m (246 ft) above the city. Currently, the castle contains a recreational park with streets named for poets. The partial reconstruction of the castle, which fell during the Napoleonic wars, has enabled its use as a museum. You can even visit the well, some 300 m (984 ft) deep, along with its underground galleries. You’ll enjoy the interesting story of these tunnels.

  • Not so much things to see..
  • Very beautiful view. From there you can see Cathedral and all city
  • Must place
  • There is not too much left of the original castle. However, it is possible to visit the underground secret network of tunnels
  • I really like because although raisins ruined a family time while they explain the history of Burgos have to go visit it I recommend it to everyone because although it is that pay is magnificent and is money well spent
