A busy square with a magnificent statue of El Cid. It’s a pity it could not have been put in a less busy place where you could study the statue and take photos safely.

The Plaza is a busy plaza with lots of traffic and the statue sits in the center. It is a beautiful and large statue that is worth taking the time to see. It is located near many other attractions in the area.

Burgos is the city of El CID. This is the best statue I've seen of him and it's a natural photo op. The plaza is often full but there are coffee shops to sit and linger.

As mentioned above. as a historian I like the statue and knowing the role of El Cid in history makes it interesting for me personally. However the actual square is nothing special but from here you can make your way through the old town center.

The statue of El Cid is impressive just for dynamic portrayal but the plaza is not spectacular with traffic all about. Best go to Plaza Mayor for a more relaxing experience.

It is literally a statue of El Cid on his horse in the middle of a traffic circle and not a place where one will hang out for a while. It is one of my favorite statues in Spain. The bridge in front of it...More
