Highlights of a Free Tour in Burgos

There are so many wonders to explore with Burgos Free Walking Tours! In particular, the city boasts one of the most sensational Gothic cathedrals in the world.

Beyond the Cathedral, Free Tours in Burgos will take you to explore many other highlights and secret places in the old town. At the beautiful Arch of Santa Maria, you will see one of the twelve medieval gates that protected the city during the Middle Ages.

Things to Do in Burgos

On the outskirts of the Burgos, you can’t miss the Monastery of the Royal Retreats, boasting Gothic cloisters of unsurpassed beauty. A bit farther away from the city center is the stunning Miraflores Charterhouse, a palace transformed into a Carthusian monastery that was favored by kings and queens to the point of amassing a trove of lavish statues and decorations. Beyond religious buildings, Burgos has many interesting museums, including one of the top museums in Spain: The Museum of Human Evolution. This interactive museum exhibits important fossils and stone tools of the earliest known hominids in West Europe, all recovered in the nearby archeological site of Atapuerca. And, of course, Burgos gastronomy is a pleasure to be discovered in the many bars, taverns and restaurants of the old town. You should taste traditional white cheese, ‘morcilla’ (black pudding) and local wines.
