This was a fantastic cathedral. We only went inside after spending two nights in Burgos. We visited with an 11 yr one and a 14 year old. The audio tour helped keep them focused. There was so much to focus on too!!! Really Ian speechless you must visit this cathedral. We were inside for about two hours.

It isn't really right to say one Cathedral is better then another but... this one is a beauty. It is the third largest in Spain and is on the Camino de Santiago for Pilgrims. It is being restored and , in fact , much of it has been done , giving the Cathedral a pristine appearance. Inside there is so... More

One of the architectural wonders of Northern Spain, if not Europe, Burgos Cathedral is also a treasure house of extraordinary masterpieces of ecclesiastical ornament. Beautiful international gothic paintings survive on the walls near the western entrance, extraordinary gilded gothic reredoses, as well as baroque chapels, a fine renaissance staircase and amazing neo-classical vaulting demand attention. And there are plenty of... More

Take the cathedral tour - you can spend hours inside this amazing place. The art work and the architecture are just breathtaking. It is Spain's 3rd biggest cathedral and is certainly one of the finest I have seen.

The Burgos Cathedral in a 'must visit' if you are in Burgos. It is absolutely beautiful but make sure you allow the time to do it properly, we only allowed two hours and it wasn't near enough. There was no charge for the visit but make sure you pay the extra for hiring the recorded guide phones otherwise you will... More

An impressive cathedral and a good audio tour. You can go at your own pace but could easily spend a couple of hours here to do it justice.

With the audio phones, it makes the visit much more interesting. Impossible to believe some of the age and history of this building.

A beautiful cathedral in a wonderfully atmospheric city. Imposes itself magnificently over the narrow streets below.

I try to incorporate as many World Heritage listed buildings in our travels and this was the reason for our visit to Burgos. 'Our Lady of Burgos' cathedral is huge, it could be seen on our approach through the streets of Burgos, it was incredibly stunning to see, the amount of detail, the fine craftsmanship. Beautifully kept. The construction of... More

This catedral is one of the most beautiful I have seen for several reasons; there are chapels with the most beautifull and bright artwork on the ceilings, the catedral is very luminious and the cloister is very pretty as well. The entrance fee is money well spent!
