Day 11 – Burgos Cathedral


Rest Day – Burgos

This will be a very short entry.

We spent the day in Burgos. We lightened our packs and prepared for the meseta, which promises some very hot weather.

In our attempt to beat the heat, we have each packed umbrellas for tomorrow and hope to be on the road shortly after 6 am.

Here are a couple photographs from the cathedral. We took nearly 200 inside the cathedral, but internet is very slow, and sleep important tonight.

But they can’t come close to showing the majesty of the church.

It is amazing. It’s huge, classy, gaudy, sublime, and all the other adjectives.

First built in the 1220’s, with updates until the 1500s, the cathedral is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
