Centro de visitantes Telesforo Bravo

Reviewed By Pasaatituuli - Helsinki, Finland

Thanks to a previous review we came for a visit and I have to admit that we enjoyed everything we were able to see and learn. This place is not well known but it should be due the upmost level of information they present here. One learn to know a lot of flora and fauna (close to my heart) of the island, more about volcanic activity etc. One of the best booths were the one giving a 3-D experience of the nature. For families with small children there could be some hands-on exhibits, but still as it is right now it is highly recommended.

Cartuja de Miraflores

Miraflores was originally a hunting lodge built by King Enrique III at the beginning of the 15th century and then converted into a monastery by the Carthusian monks, who continue there today. The remarkable church is considered one of the principal monuments of the city of Burgos and contains a royal mausoleum that is the final resting place of King Juan II and his wife Queen Isabel, parents of Queen Isabel "La Catolica". Visitors can look forward to an extraordinary experience of silence, peace and beauty.

I walked from Burgos Cathedral to Cartuja de Miraflores and enjoyed the scenery. The monastery has been wonderfully restored and has succinct details which explain the history of Burgos, Spanish royalty, and the Carthusians. Rich with history but not overwhelming. Great staff as well. An unexpected gift - upon leaving the sanctuary and entering the courtyard, the monks began to sing their afternoon prayers. Gorgeous!

Museo de la Evolucion Humana

Reviewed By FactotumDellaCitta - London, United Kingdom

Lying on the opposite side of the Arlanzón River from the cathedral is the airy glass structure of the Museum of Human Evolution. Just outside Burgos is the UNESCO-recognized site of Atapuerca, where rich deposits of hominid fossils and bones going back 1.3 million years were found. The museum is based on those findings and does an excellent job explaining evolution, in general, and hominid evolution, specifically. I wish we could've spent more time here.
