It's hard to leave an average review of such a stunning and magnificent building. We had intended to spend some time there but found there was no information in English unlike all the other wonderful cathedrals and churches we visited. The english tour guide required the download of an App which was difficult without either good mobile signal or wifi, and when eventually downloaded sadly didn't even work properly. The staff on hand were unable to resolve the problem. I don't begrudge the €14 entrance fee because the cathedral was breathtaking but our visit would have been so much more enjoyable if we'd had a better understanding of what we were admiring.

I very much enjoyed my visit to the Burgos cathedral. It was very visually appealing from the inside, as it is not dark as many cathedrals I visited but instead very light and white. I agree with others, as mentioned, the App which should function as an audio guide did not work at all and had to be downloaded which uses mobile data. I would suggest them to work with QR codes and a simple internet page so we do not need to download anything. Overall a nice experience.

If you only see one thing in Burgos, it must be the gothic cathedral. The tour takes you through the cathedral and includes the museum, cloisters etc. You download an audio guide included in the ticket and receive full information on the site. It was a little disappointing that some chapels were closed, but the fantastic Chapel of the Constables was open, and the cathedral has been beautifully restored and cleaned recently.

If you are here in Burgos, you probably came here because of this cathedral, or were drawn by its beauty as soon as you saw it. It’s huge, it’s intricate, and it is amazing. They do charge 8€ to visit it, and it is so worth it. The visit is well planed with a marked route, and you get to see almost every room, the main ship, the many chapels, the convent, the amazing pieces of art and architectural elements.
This place is very deserving of being a UNESCO World Heritage since 1984.
It is closed on Mondays.

This is one of the most beautiful churches in Europe. The architecture is classic high gothic. Be sure to see the elaborately carved portals, facades and multiple towers including an unique hexagonal one in the center. Go inside and be sure to see the high altar and the Chapel of the Constable.

Burgos Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of Saint Mary of Burgos, has been around since the 13th century and is primarily of Gothic design. The exterior is flamboyant Gothic, lavishly decorated with floral themes on the spires and pinnacles. Thanks to the hilly nature of Burgos, the church has distinctive designs incorporating terraces of the southern, lower end of the church buildings.

Inside there’s a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance. There are many outstanding chapels in the church, including the Capilla del Condestable, the Chapel of RelicsChapel of the Conception and Saint Anne. The Golden Staircase and the star-vault dome of the transept are definitely worth visiting as well

There’s also a free app to go with the tour. It has videos, but more importantly an audio guide the church

Exquisite cathedral. 10 Euro entrance was totally worth it -- comes with an audio guide that explains all the impressive chapels inside. I certainly think its one of the best, if not the best, I've seen so far. So rich in history and art! Don't skip the museum in the basement.

One of Europe’s great cathedrals in excellent condition with an interesting museum. The interior shows what was lost in England during the reformation. Well arranged visit route inside fits well with a working cathedral.

We enjoyed our visit apart from the grizzly reception we got from the lady in ticket office and the guy in the entrance hall of the cathedral, who really were unwelcoming.

Pity the commentary app did not work as there were no information available about the chapels other than in Spanish, unlike in Salamanca, where there was.

Some of the works were amazing especially those in the last chapel we visited.

Burgos is not a well known sightseeing town, but the cathedral is worth a side trip to see.

The facade of the cathedral is beautiful, the spire is very nice, and the cloister is wonderful......well worth a visit!

It is a nice walk in the area around the cathedral....a pedestrian only area, a good number of restaurants, etc.

Burgos is a nice stop about half way between Madrid and San Sebastian
