Castillo de Burgos, Burgos

3.2
#7 of 15 in Historic Sites in Burgos
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.

  • Very nice viewpoint, but I don't recommend it wireless to see the Castle because it is not worth worth
    View original
  • Castle is at the top of the Hill, the motive of the State in which it is located have on the visit. As Castle has little interesting, it is more for the history and what hidden mines and the contraminas. The price guide does not reach the 4 euros

  • 15 min walk from the Center x to get to the Castle. Entrance + guided tour € 3.7/cad well worth it. Besides enjoying a beautiful view over the city you know even the birth and history of Burgos. Also there is a visit to the deep well 62metri (the visit comes to the first step of 20 meters) very interesting. To visit

  • Going down the well is the real highlight of this visit, and it is a big highlight--great with kids, and worth a visit--very interesting historically too.
  • Not so much things to see..
