Miraflores was originally a hunting lodge built by King Enrique III at the beginning of the 15th century and then converted into a monastery by the Carthusian monks, who continue there today. The remarkable church is considered one of the principal monuments of the city of Burgos and contains a royal mausoleum that is the final resting place of King Juan II and his wife Queen Isabel, parents of Queen Isabel "La Catolica". Visitors can look forward to an extraordinary experience of silence, peace and beauty.

This review is for anyone who's thinking the Cartuja is too far to walk from the center of Burgos. IT IS NOT. In about an hour's walk along the banks of the Arlanza, a little less if you pick up the pace, youll reach a campground. Make your way to the front of it, pass the minigolf area and continue...

This place is a must see if you are visiting Burgos. It is located 4 kms from Burgos and it is possible to go walking. The entrance is free and it is a very beautiful example of Carthusian architecture and art. It is a treasure of the Gothic style of the late 15th century.

The Cartuja from the exterior is the simple hunting lodge given to be the home of the Cistercian Order. The order built up a fabulous collection of altarpieces, works of art, choir stalls, fabulous gold goblets and monstrances only to have these looted when political reversals left the Cartuja unoccupied. The order has amazingly either ensured the return of these... More

Good tour with lots to see. The tour is in Spanish but the guide answered any questions I had in English. The building and contents is an interesting mix of Moorish and western christian iconography and influences. The textiles/cloths from the 1100's in the museum are something I haven't seen the like of anywhere else.

Somehow very touching place. Feels holy, I must say. Silence, spirituality.. Free entrance in some hours of the day, they sell a little brochure that explains the place and the way of life there, with personal touch.

This is a monastery occupied by 20 monks. Part of the monastery is open to the public. The art work is beautiful, particularly the altars. History very interesting. Staff is very helpful and attentive. Monastery is in the outskirts of Burgos and therefore requires car transportation. My cousin and I are very glad we took the time to hire a... More
