EPIC ROAD TRIP
Ancient Roman bridge on the way to Burgos, still in use today. Atop the town sits a ruined fortress providing sweeping views. Tourist focal point is the cathedral*. As in other Spanish cathedrals it houses a large stone-built block in the middle. Surrounding the block and in the numerous side wings one finds an astonishing variety of architectural features that will stun even nonbelievers. The choir stalls are some of the best and most intricate you will ever see. Above them organ pipes are jutting out. Being along the Camino Santiago, Burgos hosts a fair number of pilgrims. Very lively old city.
