Burgos, founded in the 9th C. (the Celtic-Iberian era) is home of the Cathedral of Burgos, considered one of the best examples of a Gothic cathedral. History is the main reason for coming here – the beauty of a graceful medieval town is everywhere.
  El Espolón Boulevard, the center of town, is a great place to start exploring Burgos with kids. While strolling around the city, a great place to stop for a snack is around the Cathedral, where you'll find a cluster of tapas cafes.
    Burgos Cathedral in the Plaza Santa María is a treasure of Gothic architecture begun in 1221. Besides the sheer beauty of the architecture, the cathedral is worth visiting for its art (including medieval paintings, sculptures, goldsmith and silversmith pieces, tapestries, and a 16th century Bible) and the tomb of El Cid, the legendary Burgos hero.
    Museo de Burgos – Offers both fine arts and archaelogical exhibits. The archaeology exhibits cover objects from the Age of the Iron through the Roman occupation. Fine arts exhibits include objects from the Moorish influence, medieval painting, coins, as well as modern artists.
Around Burgos
      Go biking – Burgos was once an important part of the pilgrims' routes. With bigger kids (over nine) you can rent a bike and do part of the pilgrims' trail from Burgos to Hortiguela, about 40 miles or 60 kilometers. You'll go across a Roman bridge, through woods to the Monastery of San Pedro and pass through several charming villages.
