Burgos Cathedral is a Gothic-style Roman Catholic cathedral in Burgos, Spain. It is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and is famous for its vast size and unique architecture. Its construction began in 1221 and it was in use as a church nine years later but work continued off and on until 1567. It was primary built in the French Gothic style although Renaissance style works were added in the 15th and 16th centuries.
The cathedral was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on October 31, 1984. It is the only Spanish cathedral that has this distinction independently without being joined to the historic center of the city (as in Salamanca, Santiago de Compostela, Avila, Cordoba, Toledo, Alcala de Henares or Cuenca) or in union with other buildings, as in Seville. It is similar in design to Brussels Cathedral.

Very attractive view of the Camino de Santiago, especially for the ornate Renaissance spires dominating the skies, with detailed artworks gone rampant.
Thanks for sharing,
