  • Burgos is a wonderful, quiet city that welcomes you with a magical Cathedral in Gothic style and the best sausages you can eat. Very beautiful and worth knowing it.

  • Very interesting architecture, highly detailed and adorned inside. The additional side buildings and garden a surprise too. Good audio guide included with entry fee, discounted for Camino pilgrims. Well worth taking in.
  • Very nice place and good environment. A must see
  • Beautiful cathedral with comprehensive audio guide. Worth a visit!
  • Took a day off walking the Camino in hopes of seeing Bugos. Instead we spent entire time, back in time inside the Cathedral.
  • Very beautiful cathedral. This is where one of the greatest heroes of Spain, El Cid stays forever.
