The cathedral is very beautifull and a real museum. You have to pay. You visit the many corners and rooms of the cathedral. The best cathedral we ever visited.

The stained glass windows in this cathedral are an excellent example. Try Colours are stunning. Take the self guided tour and listen to when and why they were constructed. Also how the cathedral was saved from falling down.

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.

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.
