    To start the price of €6 with headset and specialized guide I think up to cheap. The site is spectacular and soaked a lot of history. The Guide perfect Isabel in their work. The visit is 1 hour and 1/2 Superrecomendado.

    We went 2 hours until they shut down ticket office because the visit lasts 1 h but the tickets were all sold. Apparently there are afternoons that is free but it is necessary to remove entry also. People removed it (because it's free) and sometimes does not show up in the schedule that touches you... Regrettable but it is so. We are left without seeing it.

    Your visit is free. They tell you if you want to leave an alms. If not leave it at the beginning you will do at the end, because it is much worth visiting the monastery. Don't go if you're in Burgos. It is a couple of Km from the Centre and is walking very easy. Also can be reached by car. I forgot, are the tombs of the parents of Isabel the Catholic and his brother.

  • 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
  • 👍
  • A must visit in Burgos. One of the treasures of the city.
