An interesting attraction for the city. Well done, some parts to visit inside, some outside. You have the possibility to go down 70 meters under the earth in a well!

A very interesting site that allows you to learn and understand Saint' (and Europe's) interesting and complicated history. At the top of the castle you can admire the most beautiful views from the city.

Its not worth go inside to see a destroyed castle. The view is free. We saw families giving up because of the ridiculous fee

From here you will be able to see all the historical and important sites to see in Burgos. There is a UNESCO map showing you each and one of them as you look at them.

The name "Castillo" is a bit deceiving, since the Castle is now mostly ruins. Nonetheless, it was fun. Plus on the way there is one of the best views of... More

The castle, attacked by Lord Wellington and partly destroyed by the Spanish who didn't want a foreign country to take possession of it, has been superbly rebuilt and is a must for visitors to Burgos. No need to... More

We've been to Burgos a few times, but had never been to the castle as it is a climb up from the city centre and is not really very promoted. It is possible to drive up, there's parking on the road up there, but we walked up, it's a bit of a climb, but there are some gardens on the... More
