  • This is a very impressive place but unless you speak Spanish you will learn little or nothing of its history. The guided tour is in Spanish only and there are no handouts in other languages for none Spanish speakers.
  • Lot of history behind those walls. The guided tour is totally recommend.
  • Don't leave Burgos without visiting this unique Monastery
