What's Burgos Like?

Burgos has had a key role in Spanish history for around a millennium. It was the capital of Castile for five centuries and boasts the imposing castle and battlements of a fortress city. In the 11th century it was famous as the base of the renowned warrior El Cid. The ornate and spectacular cathedral is the city's most impressive edifice, with elegant chapels decorated in a style heavily influenced by the Moorish occupation. Visitors also throng to the monastery of Las Huelgas and the Cartuja De Miraflores with its exquisite artworks. The city isn't all about spirituality though. The bustling market offers fresh local produce, meats and wines. For gourmets the cuisine of Burgos reflects the Castilian fondness for hearty meat dishes. The local speciality is morcilla de Burgos, a seasoned black pudding, lighter than its French or English equivalents, which is used in bean stews or as a snack. The city's nightlife is concentrated in the district of Bernardos, just to the east of the old town and within easy reach of the central Burgos hotels.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Burgos

Trying a little phrasebook Spanish will win friends in this gracious city. Follow the local habit of sauntering through the streets of the old town in early evening, stopping occasionally for a drink and tapas in the welcoming bars. Don't expect dinner to be served before 9pm at the earliest. Be aware that Burgos, like many Spanish cities, tends to close down for a break after lunch, between around 3pm and 6pm, when the streets empty and tourist sites shut their doors.
