The most beautiful towns in Burgos

As we have already shown you on numerous occasions, the interior of Spain has a lot to offer. The autonomous community of Castilla y León, for example, is one of the destinations with the greatest natural diversity on the continent, also offering spectacular monuments and a complete gastronomy. Today we want to focus on Burgos , a province that is home to the only cathedral in Spain that has been recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In addition, here you can find the Atapuerca site, one of the most important in the world.

Another of the great attractions of the province of Burgos is that it is home to towns of great interest. Today at Vuela Viajes we want to show you some of the most beautiful. Of course, we apologize in advance for all the beautiful towns that have remained in the pipeline. Would you like to join us?


First of all, we want to tell you about Frías, a town that dates back to the 9th century. Its town center is surprising, which preserves its medieval layout and atmosphere, and the castle of the Dukes of Frías, which offers a wonderful panoramic view, among other points of interest.

Peñaranda de Duero

Another town in Burgos that should be noted is Peñaranda de Duero, a beautiful medieval town that, how could it be otherwise, houses an important monumental complex, highlighting the castle . It is important to bear in mind that this town is located on the Ribera del Duero route.
