Burgos was the resplendent capital of the Kingdom of Castile in northern Spain. Today, it retains much of that grandeur and old-world architecture, seen best in the Unesco-heralded Burgos Cathedral or Castillo de Burgos. Whether you’re here for a city break or passing through while walking the Camino de Santiago, there’s accommodation to match all styles and budgets.
