In the castle, there is a viewpoint to the city, from north to south. This is the most famous view of the city for the tourist.

As you can see, the picture was taken in a snowy day. Burgos recieves snow like 10 times per year.

Thanks for the correction willo, I didn't take into account any data, only an impression.

This picture was taken last summer, it is the main walk of the "La Isla" park. This park was created at the beginning of the XIX century, when the French army invaded Spain. It goes parallel to the Arlanzón. It is a very romantic and quiet place, perfect for a walking or just spending some time in nature.

The next photo is from the flickr profile of dvd_85.

It is one of the alleys of the Human Evolution Complex.

Glass, red and sky.

This photo is stored in wikipedia, it is a panoramic view of the city from the Castle.

Burgos is very large and pretty narrow. This is because of the river Arlanzón, which structures the urbanism.

Amazing.
I've been lucky enough to visit Burgos and the detail on the cathedral is stunning.
I will definitely go back at some point in the future.

Thanks SIlverSamurai, you should come back for sure!

Let's go now with some Cathedral pics.

This is the dome, a master piece from the XVI century by Juan de Vallejo. There was a previous dome built in the XV century, but it was so huge and tall that it collapsed. Juan de Vallejo built a new one, and the result is astonishing.

Thanks Ribarca!

Another view of the Cathedral, this time from the "El Espolón", a nice walking park that I will explain in other posts.



Picture from wikipedia, here.

The "Puerta del Sarmental", is the south entrance to the Cathedral, date between 1230 and 1240.

It has one of the best gothic sculptures of Spain, a master piece that was copied all around the country after this.

The next picture shows one of the sides of the Plaza Mayor.

It is a place always full of people, used commonly to cross from the new part of the city to the old one. The buildings are pretty colorful.

Some pics of the Cathedral, from the last Easter.

Sunnny day in Burgos.



The main nave, beautiful.





This is called the "Escalera Dorada", or "Golden stairs", dated in XVI century. It is famous all around the world, because of its classy design. Also, it has been copied all around the globe.



And my favourite one, the inside part of the dome

The cathedral is incredible unlike most gothic cathedrals this one is filled with light in part due to the white stone used to build it

Yes, this kind of stone (we called here "caliza") is pretty white and perfect for a gothic cathedral.

Also, I have to add that the most part of the original stained glass windows were destroyed during the French invasion during 1812. However, the rest of the building was perfectly protected, fortunately.

Some pictures from buggl. The Museum of Human Evolution has been updated with LEDs, the result is impressive.
