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.

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.

Not much to see other than the church built mostly by Queen Isabel La Catolica for the Cartujan Order.The Retablo is a true work of art. The church contains the sarcophagus of the parents and brother of Isabel La Catolica, Queen Isabella de Portugal and Juan II de Castilla.Also their son, Isabel's brother is buried there. This is a working... More

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

We took a taxi from downtown and it cost us about 10 euros to get to La Cartuja. Later when we were ready to leave, we asked the young man working at the desk to call us one and the taxi arrived in 5 minutes. It cost us 10 euros to go back to downtown. The Cartuja is very beautiful.... More

Difficult for us to find but really worth it. The small part of the monastery that is open to the public is a must see for its beauty & serenity. The cartuja is so much better than the monasterio de las Huelgas

We didn't go to las Huelgas. I can't compare . This was a spiritual place full of treasures. The brother was so grateful that I bought a few souvenirs in the shop although they charge nothing for this lovely experience. Much more spiritual than Burgos Cathedral for me.

We consulted Google maps and decided to start our Monday at this monastery outside Burgos. The route looked simple enough, and it was. The monastery is free and it contains absolute gems of art and sculpture. For two euros, you can buy an extremely helpful and well written guide in English. It's totally worth it. As a bonus, on the... More
