Paseo del Espolon, Burgos

4.6
#3 of 7 in Parks in Province of Burgos
Lined with trees and bracketed on either side by the Arlanzon River and the classical Spanish architecture of Burgos, Paseo del Espolon is one of Castile’s most beautiful promenades. Admire the traditional Spanish buildings, built upon the site of the old city wall, as you stroll through the heart of the historic town. Visit the Gate of St. Mary, which is one of the few remaining large gates and leads to the large cathedral in Burgos’ historic center. Relax in front of one of the street’s many ponds and fountains, or people-watch with a coffee at a cafe along the way. Be sure to keep an eye out for the intricate statues of former Spanish kings scattered around the avenue. Put Paseo del Espolon on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Burgos trip itinerary builder.

    Promenade Woody in the Center. Very nice at night. Nice to have a drink, lunch or dinner in one of the terraces.

    It's a walk in the Centre of the city near the river. The buildings are very elegant and the atmosphere is very lively.
