“Why you're here”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Surely it is not possible to visit Burgos without visiting this World Heritage Site Cathedral. Chapel after chapel of beautiful interesting and historically significant art and architecture. The audio guide is very well done and essential to the full experience
. In February it was cold in the cathedral. Dress warmly.

“Worth a trip to Burgos”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

This cathedral was and still is the site of walking pilgrimages across Spain. During the fall, hundreds of people on foot and by bike stop here during their travels-- just like medieval times.

“Incredible - a must-do in Burgos”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

This ancient church is filled with ornate carving and details. There are many chapels off the main part that each have their own feel and decor. I can just imagine the pilgrims coming through on their walks and stopping at a cathedral completely filled with awe as they know that this is the story (the Bible) and the person (Jesus) for whom they are walking and to be encouraged and refreshed here. The cathedral is having some of the carving restoration done and it looks fantastic.

Completely worth the 7 euros!

“Amazing”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We did not go into the church but we walked around the outside. Burgos is such a magical place at Christmas, I would definitely recommend a visit.

“Spectacular cathedral but what happened to religion?”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We were extremely interested in this cathedral, which has many very beautiful features in it, but somehow what one imagines to be the heart of the experience seems to have been lost. Thus it has the atmosphere of a museum of religion rather than a place of worship. This is not a criticism, but rather an observation. Interesting for us, but possibly disappointing in some respects for the faithful.
