About Burgos

Burgos is best known for its amazing Gothic cathedral, which looms over the rest of the beautiful, medieval Old Town like a fancy jewel. This was once a key stop on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, but it's worth more than just a 'pop in', this is a great city for foodies and rife with interesting buildings, you just have to look beyond the cathedral. The best places to stay in Burgos tend to be very reasonably priced, because, despite the Heritage Listed Cathedral and Old Town, this is a largely unsung destination.

Burgos tends to be overlooked because on the outside, at least, it's got the grey and staid stone architecture of northern Spain. But once you enter the elegant historic centre - by the massive gates, you'll begin to see the city's treasures, including the large statue of El Cid, Burgos favourite son, and definitely worth looking up if you're going to be in this part of the country. And several elegant plazas and promenades, lined with tapas bars and cafes.

Burgos is just packed with worthy little museums and churches and it would take a number of days to 'see the sights'.

Best places to stay in Burgos

  • La Puebla is a chic, little hotel in a historic spot, just on the outskirts of the medieval heart of Burgos. The hotel is a well preserved 19th Century affair, with 19 rooms, a sun terrace and a good little bar. It's also priced extremely reasonably.
  • The Hotel Landa is a castle tower with 13 elegant bedrooms and two restaurants. Attractive, romantic and family owned, this hotel will make a memorable place to lay your head.
  • El Prado Mayor, between Burgos and the coast, is a traditional farmhouse built around a beautiful garden patio and converted in to an eight room hotel. There’s plenty of original charm and period furniture and antiques and they do a sumptuous breakfast.
