The Paseo del Espolon offers a wide, lovely, and shaded walking route along the river. There are plentiful benches and nice views.

It's a beautiful shaded tree-lined promenade! It has cafés, shops, colorful flowers, nicely trimmed hedges!

When arriving in Burgos for a visit of the historical centre, you can put the car into the underground parking of the “Plaza Vega” the carpark has the same name “Vega”. Doing so you are only a few steps from the Cathedral and the historical centre, one you have passed the bridge over the river. After you have visited the historical centre, you can do as last location the statue of “El Cid” and not cross the bridge over the river, stay on this side, and doing so you can walk back to the carpark by the “Paseo del Espolón”, this is the most central and popular tree-lined promenade in Burgos, it was created by the end of the 18th century and configured during the 19th century. It connects the Arco de Santa María with the Theatre Principal and is considered as "the living room" of the city. Nice walk and enough places with banks to have a seat.

I was walking through Burgos as part of my Camino de Santiago walk and decided to stay a day. Well worth it. The city is beautiful including the Paseo where I even found an English book in one of the many bookstores lining the tree-lined pedestrian walkway. I sat down in one of the many benches and enjoyed reading and generally watching the people of Burgos stroll by.

We walked back and forth over our stayed since our hotel was just in front the paseo del espolon. Clean and beautiful kept! We walk all our way to the cartuja de miraflores along the river path. Loves some of the statues you see along the way, especially one in front of the museum of evolution and in front of the Arc of Santa Maria a bronze figure of a lady selling "castallas".
Very interesting trees which have been cut before the spring season begin. In the summer people say that the grow so much that form a tunnel of branches!

Stroll along the river, stop at a cafe or bar, shop a little. This is the best place for a peaceful, traffic free walk.

We came across this riverside park by accident. We were in Plaza Mayor which is a large empty square during the day, (It is full of local people at night taking the air. We watched a group of young people singing and "fight" dancing - very energetic and impressive.) We walked across to look at the town hall where there are arches underneath. We walked through and we were in this delightful riverside park. There are plenty of places to take a coffee and people watch. There are wonderful topiary yew trees, large trees of various types and lovely roses in full bloom. There is a walk shaded with pruned and knobbly plane trees. There are ponds and fountains and we were amused to watch a labrador having great fun in the water! It was only with extreme difficulty that it's owner managed to persuade it that it was time to leave! At one end of the park is the marvellous St Mary's Gate one of 6 remaining city gates and it takes you to the Cathedral. At the other end of the park is the statue of El Cid. He is high on a plinth riding his horse, sword in hand and beard and cloak flying in the wind! There are various bridges across the fast flowing, clean river Arlanzon. You can drop down the steps and walk at the side the river - the grass is mown. We walked until we came to a very boggy area and red suede shoes are not suitable for walking in mud! We enjoyed this park very much and the river Arlanzon and it's tributary the Veno make a lovely fresh green green "ribbon" flowing through the city.

This is how the old wealth used to live in Burgos, and still a nice walk. A bit outside of the center (which is what they wanted) but still all of 10 minutes walking! 😂

A very nice and serene setting alongside the river Arlanzon in the old section of the town. It is we specially pretty walking under the shade of the tree canopy from Santa Maria gate to the El Cid Plaza.
