Burgos is located at the north of Castile and Leon, approximately 250 km north of Madrid and 200 km south of San Sebastian. Most people visit Burgos on their way to Santiago, as it is one of the official stops of El Camino.

However, getting there is incredibly easy, no matter where you're coming from; buses are quite frequent, and the city is also very well connected by high-speed train. 

As my visit was in the middle of winter and the area tends to be quite foggy, I opted to avoid driving and took the train from Salamanca, following the line Salamanca-Valladolid-Barcelona.

Burgos train station was rebuilt quite recently and is an incredibly big and modern station considering the size of the city, however, it is located quite far from the city centre. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
