“A must to see when in Burgos”
Review of Catedral de Burgos

Catedral de Burgos
Ranked #1 of 88 things to do in Burgos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 June 2014

A vast Gothic Catholic Cathedral in the centre of the old town which has grown in size over period of 3 centuries. There are many beautifully preserved Capillas around the central naive and cloisters under which El Sid lies buried. Powerful and impressive.....

There is a lot to see in this Cathedral (including the burying place of El Cid), and the audio guide is quite good. It includes options for going deeper in the explanations for various areas. Don't rush through it, and if possible, take some time to pray and contemplate the blessing of being in such a glorious place.

I liked it all but El Cid's tomb was a bit of a fizzer , being only an inscription on a slab on the floor.

I spent one night in Burgos while hiking the Camino de Compostela, and I'm so glad I did not miss the opportunity to see this amazing Cathedral. It is absolutely stunning, and as a Catholic, I found the experience very moving. If you're in Burgos, don't miss it!

Burgos is a delight and the Cathedral equally so......we saw it during an afternoon and evening all lit up.....well worth seein for it's own sake and for the delightful Town and immediate area.
Very pretty inside but much like any other Cathedral;
