Burgos

Founded in the year 884 by count Diego Rodríguez Porcelos, during the reign of Alfonso III, the city of Burgos still keeps the distinctive features set by its founders. Throughout the city you will find hidden spots, squares and roads in a singular environment of outstanding beauty, not only due to its monuments but also to the beautiful parks inviting to take a walk around Burgos and enjoy its multiple charms.

From the Castillo hill, privileged viewpoint of the city, Burgos seems at touching distance, showing the mixture of the old neighbourhoods and the singular view of the Cathedral, displaying before you all its greatness and charm of small stone towers and chapitels, reaching to the pure blue skies of Burgos.

Around it, the gothic churches of San Esteban, San Gil, San Nicolas and Santa Agueda; San Lesmes a bit further; in the outskirts of town, the splendid group of the Real Monasterio de las Huelgas and, to the distance, like lost among pine trees, the Cartuja de Miraflores.
