iron bars burgos cathedral spainOften, the choir and altar of a medieval cathedral will be separated from the nave by a tall set of iron bars. Some are plain. But nothing is plain in the Cathedral of Burgos.

We’ve seen most of the cathedrals of Spain, and this is one of our favorites. Relentless decoration, mostly Gothic, and they are doing a marvelous job of preserving it. The Cathedral of Burgos one is well worth going out of your way to visit. And the nice thing about it is that it’s very easy to get to on the train from Madrid. Stay over night and have the roast lamb while you’re at it.
