Beautiful. Stunning views. We loved inside, outside, and walking all around the square. Every corner had a new view. Spectacular

Not being religious Is not a handicap in appreciating the craftsmanship, history, art and spiritual yearning and glorification of the mighty and once powerful catholic cult. This place has so many chapels you could were your knees out praying on the steps of a different altar for the entire month of February! What is magnificent is the stone and wood... More

It is important not to miss it if going to Burgos. There is so much religious art to fill your soul.

Words and photos fail to capture the grandeur of this cathedral. The only way to appreciate it, is to visit and see for yourself.

Loved the architecture. The stone carvings are amazing and very well worth a visit. Walked part of the way on the pilgrims walk.

This cathedral draws your attention from the moment you arrive in central Section of Burgos. It just tempts you.. So once you "give in" and enter the Cathedral you are drawn to its history. The audio aids enhance the experience but feel free to stop and stare! Take the time.

Let's be clear: this cathedral is overwhelming, eye popping and quite frankly, far too much for most of us to take in and remember. But it's still a must see. Go the ticket office first at the street level on the left. If you go in the late afternoon, as we did, it's free. As I said, it's so overwhelming... More

The external view of the cathedral is the best part: it's really impressive. Inside is an endless series of chapels which feel a bit samey. The central nave is interesting, with a beautiful ceiling.

We have visited many cathedrals in the world. All are lovely and have unique beauty. We hadn't even planned to visit Burgos but were advised to see the cathedral there. We spent hours in the building and still didn't see enough. A truly spectacular cathedral in all ways! If you're in this area of Spain, it is a must see!
