Burgos: a walk through history (artistic and human)
Among the people of Burgos there is a belief that there are only two seasons in the city: winter and the train season... because of the low temperatures! But all agree that any time of the year is a good time to visit. Don't forget to pack warm clothes, though. Yes, even if you come in summer. As the locals will tell you: it's always cool here.
They will also tell you that the best way to get around the city is on foot and we will tell you that our hotel in Burgos, near the Cathedral, will be your best base camp.
Guide yourself by the spires of its most emblematic monument, the Santa Iglesia Catedral Basílica Metropolitana de Santa María, commonly known as Burgos Cathedral. They will be your best compass. Approach it by passing under the Arch of Santa Maria, the gateway to the old town. Take as much time as you need to admire the exterior from different angles, as no two views are the same. And once inside, lose yourself in its centuries of history. There are places that deserve to be visited slowly and slowly, and this is one of them.
Burgos is many things. Among them, a city ideal to be explored on foot, both for its size and the beauty of its corners. If you stay at our hotel in Burgos, you will sleep less than ten minutes walking distance from the historic centre of the city. Other must-see sights include the Plaza Mayor, the Plaza de la Libertad, the Church of San Esteban and Burgos Castle, crowned by a viewpoint that offers the best panoramic view of the whole city.
Indispensable: stay overnight in our charming hotel in Burgos to explore it by night
But if you fancy a more cultural stop, don't miss the Museum of Human Evolution. Don't let its acronym, MEH, mislead you. We are talking about one of the most important international information centres on the subject and the best approach to the sites of the Sierra de Atapuerca in Burgos. It is also just a stone's throw from our hotel in Burgos city centre, in case you need to recharge your batteries before or after your visit.
We feel obliged to warn you that a visit to the city of Burgos would not be complete without a gastronomic tour. If this sounds like black pudding, Castilian soup and wines from the prestigious Ribera del Duero, you're in the right place. Above all, because in Burgos the time to drink Vermouth is sacred and its restaurants are on a par with its Cathedral. And to digest the food? Follow the banks of the river Arlanza along its legendary Paseo del Espolón.
The size of its historic centre favours those who want to experience the city at night as well. Choose our hotel in Burgos city centre. In this case, the reason is twofold: its atmosphere that suits everyone and the lighting of its iconic buildings. The expert recommendation? Take one of the night tours of the Cathedral.
However, to get to know the city you will need to take your car and head for the Cartuja de Miraflores, a Gothic monastery located about 3 kilometres from the centre of Burgos. And if you're still hungry for more, you can always stop off at the Monastery of San Pedro de Cardeña, a fundamental part of the history of El Cid Campeador and an Asset of Cultural Interest.
