Spanish Burgos Cathedral

Spanish Burgos Cathedral


The Burgos Gothic Cathedral is located in the historical centre of the Spanish city of the same name, in the Autonomous Community of Castilla y León, in the northern Iberian Peninsula. Burgos Cathedral was added to the World Heritage List in 1984 and Frommer’s Spain calls it one of Spain’s best cathedrals. The construction of a cathedral at Burgos was ordered by King Ferdinand III of Castile and Mauricio, the English-born Bishop of Burgos. Construction started on the site of the former Romanesque cathedral on July 20, 1221. The high altar was consecrated in 1260, then there was a lengthy hiatus of almost 200 years before construction started up again. The cathedral was finally completed in 1567.
