Incredible, World-Heritage-listed cathedral that is full of sculptures, paintings, gold and colour - quite sensational and you shouldn't miss it if you are in Burgos.

Without a doubt the cathedral is the highlight of the city. Not only is the building fascinating from the outside, you literally can get lost inside of it! It is so huge and majestic, full of history and fascinating architecture. There is a big number of chaples built at different periods of time in different styles which makes you confused... More

There is so much light coming in unlike other Spanish cathedrals. There are some beautiful details, faces, surfaces. The audio guide is great if you want all that detail. We frankly found that a bit much.

Lots of beautiful chapels, organs and windows. The audio tour is well worth the listen and loaded with interesting historical facts.

A stunning Cathedral. Spectacular in detail and ornament. The city of Burgos is most interesting and attractive in its own right; not too difficult to access in comparison with other major cities and the Cathedral is certainly a crowning glory. Sadly - as so often - entrance fees apply (even seemingly so for pilgrims); yet what is to be seen... More

Probably one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world. Beautiful inside and inside. You should take your time in visit all the different rooms and chapells and specially the called Condestables. Surrendings are very nice too with a lot of nice tapa bars and walking area is very attractive.
