    Just above the Cathedral of Burgos, by the entrance to the cult, where the flycatchers, can not admire the spectacular retablo of the main altar

    It is next to the Cathedral. A neighbor recommended her to us and did not disappoint us. The best without a doubt the altarpiece of the high altar.

  • Linda!
  • Wonder of temple. Originally Romanesque this was built at 1.408. Very close to the Cathedral, that somewhat overshadows their wealth and importance. A stunning altarpiece in stone limestone of the Cologne 15th century, with that boast of thoroughness and talent give an incalculable value to the site. A delight for the eyes. The Gothic tombs of families who paid for the Church, do not have waste. Incredibly beautiful pieces. Visit obliged.

  • Very tiny. The impressive altarpiece, deserves to be in the Cathedral. Only for this reason, it is necessary to visit it. Otherwise it is tiny and sober.

  • It is inexcusable to not enter to see the altarpiece.
