A great place to visit to get views across Burgos. Very historical dating back to when Burgos was first settled in 800AD. Lovely surrounds with parklands and multiple ways to approach and exit.

Not the highlight of the city, that’s for sure. Quite a good historical sight, but don’t worry if you can’t visit it.

The castle is quite old and it is all outdoors. The walk there is a little steep, but nothing to worry about. You can walk along the old walls and see great views of the city. The admission is inexpensive.
