Where El Cid Campeador is buried
Cathedral of Burgos
It is one of the most beautiful architectural sets of Spanish Gothic art and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its unique layout and very particular elevation make of it an outstandingly harmonious building.
A look at its twin spires stretching up to the sky in a ripple of lace is enough. Inside the building, a bronze plaque warns us that here lies the legendary El Cid Campeador, Rodrígo Díaz de Vivar, and his wife Doña Jimena.
It was built between 1221 and 1765 and, although Gothic style prevails, there are several artistic influences scattered all over the building.
