Sasamón, the old Roman town of Segisama, stands today as one of the most impressive Historic and Artistic Sites in northwestern Burgos. The Roman heritage lives on together with the remains of Renaissance and Medieval architecture and some modern constructions, all of which make this town a must-see spot along the route through the Burgos flatlands.

The town of Sasamón, declared a Historic and Artistic Site in 1982, welcomes visitors perched on a small hillock, in the very centre of the Burgos flatland, in the western section of the province of Burgos.

This town has succeeded in preserving its history of over 2,000 years. It is surprising how the remnants of different cultures have lived together over the centuries around the cathedral-like church of Santa María la Real, one of the most beautiful manifestations of Gothic architecture in the province and the second largest church next to the cathedral, located in the province's capital.
