Castillo de Burgos, Burgos

3.1
#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.

  • The surroundings of the castle today is a recreation park with streets devoted to poets. The partial reconstruction of the fortress (destroyed by the French troops of Napoleon) has allowed his Habilitation as interpretation centre, and can also visit well and subterranean galleries, known as Cueva del Moro, and it says the a legend that lead up to the banks of the river Arlanzón. Tours are self-guided, except in regards to the underground route, which takes place in groups reduced and always accompanied by a guide who explains the tour.

  • It is near Burgos and great views of the city are from there but if you're going to see Castle you just disappoint because it tends to be closed for many hours and is poorly preserved I don't know the reason, Pan last time we were so.

  • Bad that the only information of the door is a paper that says by visits of groups of more than 20 people send mail. Closed and there was no timetables or anything. That penalty seemed nice.

  • 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..
  • Very beautiful view. From there you can see Cathedral and all city
  • There is not too much left of the original castle. However, it is possible to visit the underground secret network of tunnels
