Burgos, gastronomic destination of the year

Burgos is a wonderful city, full of treasures to discover. And, at the head of its important artistic legacy, of course, is its imposing cathedral, a jewel of Gothic architecture. But Burgos has many other attractions that make your visit a must: its historic center, its many monuments, the life that is breathed in its streets and squares …

However, today I want to highlight a powerful reason to visit Burgos: its gastronomy. Proof of this is that it was the Spanish Capital of Gastronomy in 2013. If you go there you can enjoy flavors that you will not forget. Do you need more reasons to plan a getaway to the city of El Cid Campeador?

Flavors of always and today

For all that it contains, starting with its cathedral, which is a Gothic marvel, Burgos is one of the most visited cities in our geography. In fact, The New York Times chose it as the best Spanish tourist destination for this year. And it is not surprising, since it contains a thousand sensory experiences to enjoy. In addition, due to its cool climate in summer, it will be a more than tempting option if you want to escape the heat.

Today we are going to tell you the secrets of the gastronomy of Burgos that arouses so much interest lately. Although the roast of suckling lamb is Castilian heritage, Burgos is the perfect place to taste it. At Casa Ojeda , one of the most traditional restaurants in the city, lamb is the specialty. But they also masterfully develop other typical dishes of the province such as the famous blood sausage or Ibeas beans.

But if what you want is to try new flavors, although anchored to the earth, you will have to visit Fábula , one of the restaurants that has been causing the most talk in recent months. Its chef, Isabel Álvarez, is responsible. You can also go to Blue Gallery to try the delicacies signed by chef Saúl Gómez. Whichever you decide on, you will take a good memory of the city with you. It will be worth it.
