The castle is about 15 minutes uphill walk, mostly stairs, from the city centre but can also be reach by car. It has lovely views of Burgos and the entrance is cheap. Unfortunately we couldn't go in the tour as our children are too young ( minimum age is 7 years old) but we enjoyed it anyway. I'd recommend to... More

I only walked around the castle as you can pretty much see the same views from the outside (especially the Mirador view is quite nice). If you do go inside, you can climb one of the towers and really get a paranomic view of the city. It is not a particularly big castle. Just outside the gate is a restaurant... More

During summer months the castle is open for visits most days and not just weekends. I went today ( monday ) and decided to walk up from the cathedral. It was a pleasant walk up to the viewpoint with its amazing views over the city and continued up to the castle. Entrance fee can be either 2.60 for just castle... More

We walked up the steps to the castle which is a bit of a hike on a hot day, but you can drive up and park if needed. However you make your way up, it's well worth a visit with excellent views of the city and surrounding areas and a very interesting couple of hours ahead of you. Check the... More

An experience I will never forget. Steeped in the past these cave are some of the oldest in Europe. Back through the ages and you can just imagine life as it was back then. Well worth a visit.

This hill near the middle of the city is worth a visit. The castle itself is not much to see but the view over the city, and especially the cathedral is worth the short climb. You can also see the Romanesque Abbey of Santa María la Real de Las Huelgas just beyond the walls. Just nearby, in the walls of... More

We were unlucky to be able to visit the castle on our only day in Burgos, my advise is to check the opening times beforehand to avoid disappointment. From the road and through the closed gates there is very little to view of the castle dating back to the 9th century. Regardless of this the views over the city from... More

Uphill walk only made hard but the huge lunch we had just eaten! Views of town extend out to open countryside and cathedral completely dominates those views making some of the modern buildings look extremely ugly!

It's a climb up to the castle and I did not think it was worth the effort. The views are fantastic of the whole city especially the cathedral. You can take a little train from near the cathedral but it just stops for the views there is no time to visit the castle

Worth a visit to see the great panoramic views of the city and surrounding area. Small charge to enter but the grounds are well kept and the exhibits explain the interesting historical background.
