Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

It took us 1.5hrs on foot because no bus service from city centre during the winter. Its interior was well kept. Some knowledges on the Middle Age history would be a help.

It is a very small monastery in the outskirt of Burgos. One might need to drive there as I don't see any public transportation nearby. The highlight is a beautiful tomb of a Spanish king and Queen and their son.

Would go there again. Beautiful woodwork; great art. You should get a good guide or audioguide to explain the history that is behind this treasure of a monastery

The entrance is free, but you're invited to give a free contribution. Contains a small but interesting museum.
The best way from the center of the city of Burgos is a long walk along the river.

Most of the guide books say that you need a car to get to the charter house. We made it by public transport, taking a bus from Plaza de Espana and walking the final stretch in about 10 minutes. It was well worth it. It's a very atmospheric place. The retablos and the tombs by Gil de Siloe are really beautiful.
