Above photo - The Burgos Cathedral.
In looking for a city to explore in northern Spain, I was enticed to Burgos by photographs of the lattice-decorated spires of its cathedral. Once in the presence of the cathedral, I was struck immediately by the uniquely decorative carvings that dominate almost every inch of its exterior.

Photo right: Commemorative statue in Burgos.

You might read in a guidebook about the “steel-gray spires” of the cathedral, but due to a recent cleaning, the cathedral’s color is now more of a warm tan.

Burgos has been a nexus of historical events. Located on the pilgrimage route to Santiago, it was the capital of the Castile Kingdom for 500 years and during the Spanish Civil War, Franco’s headquarters.
