Paseo del Espolon, Burgos

4.6
#1 of 7 in Parks in Burgos
Lined with trees and bracketed on either side by the Arlanzon River and the classical Spanish architecture of Burgos, Paseo del Espolon is one of Castile’s most beautiful promenades. Admire the traditional Spanish buildings, built upon the site of the old city wall, as you stroll through the heart of the historic town. Visit the Gate of St. Mary, which is one of the few remaining large gates and leads to the large cathedral in Burgos’ historic center. Relax in front of one of the street’s many ponds and fountains, or people-watch with a coffee at a cafe along the way. Be sure to keep an eye out for the intricate statues of former Spanish kings scattered around the avenue.

  • From the Square of Mio Cid, to the Arch of Santa Maria, one of the most beautiful urban walks that can be made, between rows of trees and centenary buildings. Peek to the banks of the Arlanzón and enjoy charming corners, such as the statues of the 4 kings, the music kiosk, the casino or the Main Theatre. It seems that time had stopped in the early twentieth century. You can't miss The Spur on a visit to Burgos.
