My wife and I visited Burgos today from La Rioja because the weather forecast was bad. Thank heavens for the forecast - without it we would have missed this beautiful cathedral which has been lovingly restored to a near pristine condition. For a small admission fee you will get to see treasure after treasure all described in good detail by... More

next time though I want to find a personal guide; the audio-guide is dry and boring with little detail of architecture, restoration, gossip.

A stunning cathedral which must not be missed. There is a very informative audio guide which guides you around the different chapels. Well placed to see the rest of Burgos.

This cathedral is very beautiful. Don't just wander around -- get a guide who can make it come alive for you.

This cathedral worth a visit. You need to pay a fee, but it's not too much and there are discounts for students. This fee includes an audio guide with very complete explanations of every corner you would visit within the cathedral. Chapels are really charming, plenty of art and curiosities. Noble people are buried there and at the end of... More

When you pay admission, you get a free audio guide. It has a lot of detail about each and every nook and cranny in the cathedral. Among the top 10 in Europe.

This Cathedral defines the city of Burgos. It is beautiful both inside and out in the audio guide although not delving very deep into the history adequate information on the building and its history. The museum like areas were great.

Superb cathedral, unique starred ceilings. Many beautiful altarpieces in each of the numerous chapels of the cathedrals. Allow two hours, with a guide if you can. Didn't appreciate the audio tour.
