We passed by this beautiful 15th century palace on the way back to our car. So glad we did not miss it! I was very impressed both with the imposing Gothic facade and the history of this building. The Spanish Kings welcomed Christopher Columbus there upon his return from his second journey to America.

it was here that Columbus met the Spanish Kings upon his return from the second trip to the Americas, I could not visit inside in my visit but just admiring it from the outside is well worth and admire the Cordon above the entrance.

This former palace was built as a pied a terre by the same wealthy family responsible for building the Inglesia de San Nicholas. It is a stunning and imposing building. Separate from its courtyard the interior has been totally remodelled by the bank that now occupies it. Very central and worth looking at.

This is one of the few grand city palaces that are still standing in Burgos. It is currently owned by a bank, and functions as such. However, you can enter and see the inner courtyard, which has been tastefully integrated with the modern roof, and its modern function as a bank. The outside has some very nice decorations and heraldic shields, so even if the bank is already closed, it is worthwhile to pass by to see the exterior.

This is a masterpiece of architectural elegance. It is supposed to be gothic, but I found it more subtle and it seemed to be more pre-Romanesque or Renaissance in appearance. Quite beautiful
