Paseo del Espolon is a small tree lined promenade which runs along the Rio Arianzon on the cathedral side of town, the area is peaceful with fountains, statues and sculptured shrubs. Also worth walking is the Paseo Sierra de Atapuerca on the other side of the Rio.

Stroll along the river, stop at a cafe or bar, shop a little. This is the best place for a peaceful, traffic free walk.

Take your time and enjoy this ambient stretch of Burgos. Its fitting that the paseo del Espolon is in the pious city of Burgos; this pedestrian boulevard aptly showcases the beautiful and aesthetically-pleasing manipulation of plants - I visited in the late fall and it was immaculately well kept. Nice for a stroll after a nice glass of Ribera o... More

If you like to know about human evolution from the very begining, this is a must. Para enamorados de la prehistoria y la evolución humana desde sus principios en África. Atapuerca super bien explicado

I Loved it. It was the perfect resting point in a sunny hot summer day. There is a lot of shade for you to rest. Surrounding the Espolon there are lots of small stores where you can buy local products and souvenirs

The Spaniards love to stroll (walk) and this is a great place to join them. There are several cafes along the way and it is extremely picturesque with the river on one side of you and the lovely architecture on the other side. This is parallel to the cathedral and on your way to/from the Plaza Mayor. The trees are... More

The pollard willows on this stretch of walk way are very picturesque. In winter, when it might be a bit misty, the atmosphere is top. On Sundays, it seems that the entire population is walking on this paseo.

We came across this riverside park by accident. We were in Plaza Mayor which is a large empty square during the day, (It is full of local people at night taking the air. We watched a group of young people singing and "fight" dancing - very energetic and impressive.) We walked across to look at the town hall where there... More

In contrast to the busy cathedral area of Burgos, the walkways along the river are a nice way to escape the crowds. The local people stroll along here and walk their dogs on the riverbank. Lovely gardens with statues and fountains.
