About the tour

We will start our tour in the San Lesmes Parish Church, where we will visit his sepulchre, the stunning altarpiece and the organ.

Hemos disfrutado un montón el tour con Javier. Se nota que conoce Burgos a la perfección y que ama esta ciudad. Muy ameno. Nos hemos quedado con ganas de volver y hacer más tours con él. Estoy segura que algún día lo haremos. Esta ciudad está cargada de historia y merece más días de los que hemos podido dedicarla. Gracias por compartir tu amplio conocimiento con nosotros.

El tour fue muy didáctico y distendido. Aprendimos y disfrutamos de la ciudad con Javier que no hizo pasar un buen rato.

¡Lo recomendaremos!
