I invite you to wander the streets hand in hand with a traveler who observes the world through a macro lens without missing any detail, no matter how insignificant it may seem. I have a long experience as an official guide and one, not so long, but no less important, as an art historian and designer. My tours are nourished by my passion for dissemination and research, but, above all, curiosity and the desire to constantly discover new things, experiences and places.

Tour description

Some would say that a tourist tour is comparable to a trip to the past, but I assure you that nothing is further from reality . Cities, their streets and their buildings are alive and constantly evolving both in their appearance and in their functions.

Come with me on this tour through the old streets, and not so old ones, in the center of Burgos, where the true protagonist will be the city that had once been the capital of the Kingdom of Castile and the crossroads of the main Caminos and routes from medieval times.
We will visit the most emblematic places of the city , providing historical and more recent facts , curious data and anecdotes , which will help us sketch the culture and people who have inhabited these lands for centuries and continue to fill them with life today.
We will stop before the unique exteriors that make up the current image of the city and we will highlight, among them, arches, Renaissance palaces, churches, monumental works and squares of the most important to finish where we started, and where all roads cross - ahead of the Cathedral of Santa Maria.
If you want to enjoy a tour designed for small groups, enjoyable and familiar, do not hesitate to take one of the limited places and join me on a fun walk full of stories.

Doroteya was an excellent tour guide. She gave us detailed explanations and funny anecdotes about the history and monuments of Burgos. She kept checking on us and the rest of the group to see if we were following the info and felt comfortable. Also, we ate the best patatas bravas ever thanks to her recommendations!! Would absolutely recommend her!
