The altar piece is astounding. Very friendly staff, even opened the museum for us. The custodian also presented our kids with a piece of candy:-) Plus: you get to walk the Jacob's Pilgrimage, at least for a couple of meters.

We had to wait for a wedding to conclude to get in, but the Cathedral wasn't open yet so we waited. We were both glad we did. This is a jewel hidden in plain sight. Even the door is hidden in the larger door.The acoustics are excellent, great venue. Aside from that there are some excellent highlights, including a gorgeous... More

There is a place in the church where it is possible for 1 Euro to switch on the light of retablo. It is situated in the mid of church near the coulumn closer to the exit.

If you have been traveling this stretch of Spain you may reach a state of being Cathedraled-out. The main attraction in Burgos is of course, the Cathedral. But this is very worthy of a visit. As you look at the main entrance of the Burgos Cathedral, the Iglesia is to the left, up the hill and behind the Cathedral. As... More

Just above the Cathedral, this small church has, in my view, the finest stone retablo in Spain. Granted, I saw very few stone retablos, but by any standards of art, this is a jewel. It's a few euros to enter, but it's worth it. And you can sit and stare till you drink it all in.

Impressive altar but I saw similar style (much prettier) altar in Olite's St Mary's. Open daily 11:00 - 14:00 and 17:00 - 19:00. There is SO much to see in Burgos, if prioritising I would say this one can be easily passed. However if you walk past and it is open just pop in to see quickly and make up... More

There is an astonishing wall of figures...64 I think. In front, and at least as impressive, is a stone span/arch. How does it stay up? Another Spanish mystery.

It is easy to overlook, even being so close to the cathedral. you will find it up the stais of the west entrance to the cathedral. The wall behind the altar is unique a very worth the visit. Best visit at late afternoon, a bit before sunset, to take a nice picture of the cathedral from the entrance of San... More

This church is too close to the cathedral, so it is overlooked. But the carvings over the door are beautiful and inside there is a lovely wall behind the altar.
