Sometimes my wife and I get tired of visited Spain's cathedrals, which end up looking more or less the same, at least to two people who are not very into architecture. But this cathedral is worth visiting due to its size and history. The audio guide comes with the price of admission, but we ditched it soon after the tour... More

I refuse to pay to enter a cathedral, which seems to be norm in most of Spain. You can go in the back door and see the back of the cathedral, it is clearly a wonderful place. It is especially sad that Camino de Santiago walkers have to pay - many of whom are on a budget, and the kind... More

This highly spiritual place is also an architectural and artistic masterpiece, from its sheer size, altars and very valuable religious artifacts collection. Not mentioning its historical importance throughout both Spain and the Catholic church. A must go place in Burgos. You will be impressed by its beauty and magnitude.

Gobsmackingly rich in color, history gold, detail, atmosphere etcetera. Really glad I went and took my time. The English tour was helpful but left out so much dealt if aspects that I was interested in. Still v helpful tho as nothing written in English.

The Burgos cathedral is one of the greatest cathedrals in Spain, if not more. The great restorations in the many small chapels, the crossyard and museum make it a real gem. Look for the golden stairs, imagine people waling down centuries ago and you feel yourself back in history. Take your time, its an absolute must.

When the pope came to Spain a few years ago this was on his "must see" cathedral now having visited it we understand why.

Absolutely enormous cathedral, so well integrated into the city centre architecturally! Built over a number of levels with many ornate chapels. Allow at least 2 hours for your visit. Tip: I was doing the Camino de Santiago and had the "credencial" passport, so got in at a heavily discounted rate. Even at full price, it's well worth it!

One of the nicest cathedrals of Spain, but even if you are Catholic or a pilgrim they charge you to see it, maybe we have to start charging the churc to go to mass. I refused to pay to go into a place built with the contributions of all people and with the intention to be visited without getting charged... More

Grogeous cathedral. Wonderfully ornate chapels inside it - esp the Capella Santa Ana - wow. Many wonderful stone sculptures as fine as filigree, esp by the sculptor Gil de Siloé and of course tons of gold. The audio guide is worth having, although it is not particularly well written and the English speaker makes several mistakes, including not being able... More
