Car Hire Burgos

Burgos Guide

Few inland cities in Spain are popular as tourist destinations, mainly because of the extreme heat encountered in the summer months. Whilst Burgos is one of those cities, it deserves more attention for several reasons. The spectacular UNESCO listed cathedral holds the entombed body of the great Spanish hero, El Cid whilst the city itself is a stop on the Way of St James leading to Santiago de Compostela. You’ll find plenty of evidence of the importance of religion in the city from the cathedral to monasteries and convents, many of which open their doors to visitors.


Burgos Directions

The airport is only 4kms from the centre of Burgos and it’s a straightforward journey on the N120 into the city.


Burgos Parking

Parking at Burgos Airport is minimal but then the airport isn’t that busy. 188 cars can park in the car park which is partly underground. It’s only a short walk to the terminal from the parking area.


Burgos Flight Information

Burgos Airport is only a regional domestic airport but is very close to the centre of the city. There are no direct flights from the UK but a budget flight to Barcelona at any time of the year followed by an Air Nostrum flight will get you to Burgos.


Hotels Near Burgos Airport

If you want to treat yourself try the Melia Fernan Gonzalez Boutique Hotel which is the height of understated luxury. For those on a tighter budget try the Apartamentos La Puebla which are clean, basic but good value for money.


Burgos Time Zone

An hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time, Burgos is on Central European Time (GMT+1)

Burgos Info

Burgos has many claims to fame, the main being that it is on the Way of St James that pilgrims take on their walk to Santiago de Compostela. It has a very famous and imposing cathedral that can be seen from almost everywhere around the city and as you approach the city. Its modern history can be traced back over 1200 years as a frontier post for the spread of Christianity and whilst few remains of the old city care found, it has an interesting medieval quarter.

Burgos Trivia:
  • Burgos is the historic capital of the region of Castile
  • The Burgos Laws which dictated the way the Spaniards treated their South American conquests were formulated there
  • Its impressive cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage site
  • One of the world’s most impressive museums, the Museum of Human Evolution recently opened there
