The cathedral is a vast and variably beautiful building - very chopped up compared with the open spaces within St Peter's, St Paul's or Westminster Abbey, for example. Look up - some of ceilings are truly spectacular.

Impressive Architecture , originally a converted castle and added to many times. Get the Audio guide. The high vaulted ceilings and eight pointed star rose with stained glass skylight is very impressive. El Cid and his wife are buried under the floor in the center of the Cathedral.

This cathedral is magnificent! Absolutely stunning. The vaulted ceilings, beautiful frescos, and impressive statues and architecture makes this place quite a gem. You could spend quite some time walking around admiring everything.

Definitely, this is the best part of Burgos, the best Church/cathedral ever. And you don´t have to pay a lot (less than €8)

This is a must-do in Burgos. The cathedral is stunning, and given the size of the city, it's even more spectacular. The history behind it is amazing, and you won't regret the visit.

For the size of Burgos, the cathedral is amazing, beautiful and ever so big. Excellent head-phone tours to guide you. I loved the pride the people of Burgos have in it. They like it better than St Peter's!

One of the most beautiful Cathedrals. We did the self guided tour with the earphones. You can take photos. The history is facinating. Highlight of Burgos.

We were blown away with the wealth of art,,including sculptures, painting, and religious artefacts. Again an audio guide is essential to ensure you get the most from your visit. There are no toilet factions within the cathedral. The nearest public toilets are in the Plaza
