Tour description

➡️ OFFICIAL TOURIST GUIDE AND HISTORIAN

A different tour to meet the most famous man in the entire history of Burgos.


The figure of the Cid Campeador has always aroused much interest and controversy. It has been said that he was one of the greatest heroes in history, it has also been stated that he was a traitor who sold his king in exchange for money, and it has even been said that he was a bloody mercenary. What is true in all these statements?

With this free tour we will learn about the legendary events that this illustrious medieval knight carried out. In addition, we will visit parts of the city of Burgos that may go unnoticed on a typical guided tour, but that hold a lot of history and legend linked to the Cid.
