The cathedral worth the visit. It is very rich and beautiful. However the audio-guide is too technical with too many names and dates. It is interesting to know when and who, but a bit more of storytelling would make it more fun.

I am no architect expert. I am no huge history buff. Seeing too many museums and churches really can drain my travel spirit. But I do appreciate beauty and that is fully what I experienced at the Catedral of Burgos!

The Cathedral is the hub of Burgos old town, attracting thousands of visitors. Birthplace of El Cid the cathedral hosts an impressive mural amid multiple cloisters and altars added over the centuries. Real gothic glitz.

Lovely Cathedral. We took the audio tour, which probably gave us too much information. Nontheless a great tour.
