Situated in the Pilgrim's Road to Santiago de Compostela, Burgos still preserves important vestiges of its medieval splendor. Burgos, the capital of the unified kingdom of Castilla-Leon for five centuries, boasts a masterpiece of Spanish Gothic architecture: the cathedral of Burgos, declared World Heritage. Beneath the majestic spires of the cathedral lies the tomb of Burgos' favorite and most famous son, El Cid. This is a city that begets deeper exploration. The medieval quarter unfolds on the foothill of the fortified Castle Hill, which has the best views of the city. Some of the remarkable buildings include the Mudejar Arch of San Esteban and the Gothic church by the same name, which houses the Reredos Museum. Another important temple is the one devoted to San Nicolás, where you can see a magnificent polychromatic alabaster reredos.
