The place is medium sized. There are exhibits of the Miraflores antiques. There are some videos to show their history. You can donate a euro and some statues light up. There is no english explanation for some exhibits. But, the colours are all pretty nice....More

It is a must go. It was almost all built in the times of Isabella I, the Catholic and it is a wonderful example of gothic art.

This was our favourite place to visit in Burgos, the visit is limited to the church and a small museum but the atmosphere is very special. The staff is welcoming and there is plenty of interpretive information in English. Entry is free but donations are...More

This is the most wonderful Monastery. I think it is an absolutely must see stop around Burgos. I shall go back for another visit, as I could not take all of it in at one go. À merveille du monde.
