Burgos, a city in Castilla-Leon situated in the Pilgrim’s Road to Santiago de Compostela, still preserves important vestiges of its medieval splendour.
The city is known primarily for the huge number of religious monuments. The magnificent Burgos Cathedral has been its unchanging and most recognizable symbol since the 13th century. Inside, the multi-storey carved altar is delightful, and in the cathedral treasury you can see numerous works of sacred art.
Burgos Castle rises above the buildings of the city. It was built in the 9th century and was one of the most important fortresses of the Reconquista period. The hill on which the ruins stand is also worth visiting because of the observation deck located here, from which you can see the panorama of the city.
