most beautiful Gothic cathedrals on Earth where one can also find the
grave of the famous Spanish national hero of the era of the Spanish
Reconquista, Rodrigo Diaz "el Cid Campeador", and his wife. The most
popular part of the Road to Santiago, the "French Way", passes Burgos,
and that's why many pilgrims characterize the cityscape.
