Burgos is a very central city next to very important town being just by bus two hours from Madrid, Santander, Bilbao, Valladolid or Zaragoza for example… but although it is interesting to visit other cities, Burgos is very proud of itself due to here the first European citizen was discovered; and also due to be Capital of the Castilla Kingdom and the referents of such glorious period as the castle, Las Huelgas Monastery, the Gothic Cathedral or el Hospital del Rey.
Burgos is a city road to Santiago de Compostela, very important to pilgrims.
