Miraflores was originally a hunting lodge built by King Enrique III at the beginning of the 15th century and then converted into a monastery by the Carthusian monks, who continue there today. The remarkable church is considered one of the principal monuments of the city of Burgos and contains a royal mausoleum that is the final resting place of King Juan II and his wife Queen Isabel, parents of Queen Isabel "La Catolica". Visitors can look forward to an extraordinary experience of silence, peace and beauty.

We didn't go to las Huelgas. I can't compare . This was a spiritual place full of treasures. The brother was so grateful that I bought a few souvenirs in the shop although they charge nothing for this lovely experience. Much more spiritual than Burgos Cathedral for me.

We consulted Google maps and decided to start our Monday at this monastery outside Burgos. The route looked simple enough, and it was. The monastery is free and it contains absolute gems of art and sculpture. For two euros, you can buy an extremely helpful and well written guide in English. It's totally worth it. As a bonus, on the... More

On a warm day we decided to walk to the Cartuja, following the instructions of other travellers. After a 40 minute walk along the river, we climbed up to the monastry and rested for a while in de shadow of the trees in front of the entrance. The smell of the pinetrees in the heat of summer! The monastry itself... More

Our visit to the Cartuja de Miraflores was the morning activity on a wonderful day in Burgos. We went to the market (the Mercado del Norte, or Mercado Municipal, near the Plaza España) first thing to pick up picnic food. Then we followed the accurate walking directions left by a previous reviewer (stonewithnomoss), which I will repeat here: "First of... More

The Cartuja de Miraflores is too far from the centre of Burgos to walk. A car or bicycle is needed. That said, I recommend making the effort. It is still in use for religious purposes and so is a place for reflection as well as sightseeing. One of the brothers greets you and there is information in English to help... More

As we sat before the altar a beautiful calmness crept over the whole area. The carvings are magnificent and must not be missed.

This is certainly worth a visit. There is the advantage for non Spanish speakers that everything is also in English, assuming English is one of your languages! It is also the first place I've been where they have shown the history of some of the objects looted from them at various times and shown where they are now and what... More

This place has very high quality of detailed artwork. The receptionist gave us a very warm welcome and showed us the church. It was an amazing experience seeing the monastery. If you are ever near Burgos, this is a place you have to visit!

Was surprised at how good this place was given that there were no signs to it and Lonely Planet had not rated it very high. It is worth making the effort to find it. A very peaceful place and beautifully restored.

About a 10 minute drive into the countryside, a very enjoyable experience. Magnificent carved altarpiece and tombs of Juan II and Isabel of Portugal from 1454. Excellent museum.
