Unfortunatelly, there isn't much left after Napoleon blew the castle up but still the history is very interesting as well as the well.

If you have children they will probably enjoy this if you do the guided tour down to the tunnels and the well.

Not much left, mostly the plan off the walls, but a fascinating history well presented. Has marvelous views over the city also.

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

The highlight of the visit was the tour of the underground tunnels. It would have been so much better if there had been, at least a printed guide in English, even if the human guide only spoke Spanish. Fascinating. Well done.

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 tour is cheap and takes you down into the tunnels where people dug into the castle to poison the well water. Not for the claustrophobic. It is pretty cool. 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
