“Visit if you have time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

This is an easy 20 min. walk from Burgos Cathedral, but you can also take the bus. There is an admission fee and groups will go in on tours. You are not allowed to wander around by yourself. The gift shop has some lovely things, so it is worth a look.

“Royal catacombs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Utterly interesting catacombs and sarcaphagi of the early royal families. Grandiose halls, chapels and rooms. Worth a visit.

“Hidden beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

Although I am still unhappy we were not permitted to take photos here, I loved it. It´s definitely a hidden beauty, packed away in a residential area of Burgos, but totally worth the trip. It´s only about 10 minutes walking from the main Arco de Santa Maria, so GO.

“interesting royal monastery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

You are not allowed to wander freely on the premisses, but a guide shows you around. I know Spain has sometimes problems with terrorists, but I found the security a little extreme: I had to leave my small rucksack in the locker, but before I was even obliged to put it in a scanner.
