Welcome to Burgos!
This was a fairly unplanned trip compared to other excursions. Burgos is not a large city and we figured we could find what we wanted by just driving around. ...and after a lengthy period of driving in circles or on roads that seemed to take us straight out of the city, we managed to find the castle. There isn't much of the castle remaining because Napoleon blew it up, this is a common theme at historical sites here in Spain. Maybe that's the origin of the name Napoleon Dynamite? Unfortunately for us, we spent a little too much time driving around looking for the castle and by the time we found it, they were just closing the gate. Luckily though, it was the Christmas season and there was still plenty to see and experience.
Burgos Cathedral or see more pictures go to that site and it is all you ever wanted to know... more, actually.
We did manage to find a place to eat, not good food but good enough to get us through. When we no longer had the fog of hunger to prevent us from seeing the sights of the city center we were pretty excited to check it out.
The Plaza Major was set up for the holidays. Including specialty food vendors like the one above. They had carved a watermelon and a squash into a flowers.
