The castle is quite old and it is all outdoors. The walk there is a little steep, but nothing to worry about. You can walk along the old walls and see great views of the city. The admission is inexpensive.

The castle was closed when we were in Burgos, but I was totally unimpressed with the exterior and castle walls. Most of the castle was destroyed centuries ago. What's left are low walls with no towers or turrets. There are plenty of nicer castles within...More

Visited this site with friends and saw simulated sword fights. Fun and interesting with a good commentary/explanation by the guide. Thunder and lightning during the visit provided an interesting backdrop. The historical exhibition is nicely laid out too and the views of the city and...More
