Absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit. Stunning at night & well worth a look. The surrounding areas are filled with very nice cafés and bars.

The cathedral in Burgos is very large and was built in several sections. It has so much history. Spend a few hours here wandering and learning and then enjoy the city and great food nearby.

An ongoing restoration programme is cleaning up this cathedral to look almost-new and polishing up one of the most impressive jewels in the treasure box of Spanish monuments. Its almost impossible to do it justice in a few words here - you just have to see it.

The historical significance of this cathedral as well as its architectural genealogy ensure that this is one of the most important in Europe. The astonishing beauty of its interior makes it an unforgettable sight. To the local peasant folk in the middle ages, drawn to worship by its bells, it must have induced an incredulous awe, as they gazed upwards at its towering heights, columns brilliantly painted with faux architectural details and Biblical scenes. They must have left feeling the church and crown could do anything.

Only open day and a free inter-galactic flight on a mothership UFO could make such an impression on our jaded imaginations. In the context of that, the 7 euro entrance fee seems an irrelvance.
